Discover free films for watching, discussing and exploring filmmaking.
Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19 May) is fast approaching and we are excited to once again present a number of resources and film lists to help educators engage with this year's official theme of 'Body Image'.
Organised by the Mental Health Foundation, the week aims to find, address and explore the many sources of mental health problems. As per the foundation's free supporter pack, 50% of all mental health issues are established before the age of 14 so it is an important opportunity to equip students with the language and tools to help themselves and others - especially considering how relevant issues around body dissatisfaction and the factors contributing to it are for young people.
Make sure to download our primary and secondary body image resources below and browse our film list for titles on body image that can be ordered and watched in your club/classroom. Meanwhile, you can find a greater range of engaging material on our Mental Wellbeing page, including our youth-made Moving Minds short films - some of which also address body image.
This resource uses film to explore body image issues with primary students.
This resource uses film to explore body image issues with students aged 11-16.
