Synopsis

Funded by ICAP charity day, our Moving Minds projects paired young people across mainstream secondary school settings, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), and Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) with professional filmmakers to create short films around mental health topics of their choice.


We have curated a selection of films from both projects for Into Film+, which you can use to introduce your pupils to a broad range of mental health themes including anti-bullying, self-esteem, social isolation, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, bereavement, and more.


Titles in the collections are:


Animations on Mental Health 2 (suitable for pupils aged 7+)


Young people discuss the vulnerabilities of living with mental ill health, and how being honest and talking openly with friends and family can be a great help.


Key themes: Introduction to mental health awareness; how to stay mentally healthy


Mental Health Myths (suitable for pupils aged 11+)


Young people use Claymation to discuss and debunk common mental health myths.


Key themes: Introduction to mental health awareness; depression; post-traumatic stress disorder; strategies to stay mentally healthy

Contemplation of nature and its benefits are evoked in this meditation on a shady wood. A woodland is evoked as a place of refuge from the elements and a shelter for those who live within it.

Behind the Mask (suitable for pupils aged 11+)

The Broken Rose (suitable for pupils aged 11+)

Key themes: Anxiety; social isolation; positive friendships; seeking help


A Voice Too Small (suitable for pupils aged 11+)


How can a young person deal with bullying when they have a monster battling for control? In the forest of the mind, the monster of negativity looms large. A little voice of self-esteem can be heard, but will this creature grow large enough to overcome the doubts?


Key themes: Anti-bullying; cyber-bullying; self-esteem


Like, Share, Delete (suitable for pupils aged 11+)

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
