England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales
This strand aims to open-up discussion around young people and mental health. The mental health spectrum is vast and complicated, unpicking what mental wellbeing means to you can be a challenging task in itself, let alone being aware of the impact that mental health issues can have on the people around you. It's important to be there for others but equally so to learn how to take care of yourself and the films in this strand highlight characters achieving this with very varying degrees of success.
This resource is made up of a Powerpoint presentation with activities and teacher's notes designed to enhance your experience of visiting the festival and can be used before or after viewing a film that is part of the Mental Wellbeing: Moving Minds strand. You can cherry-pick the activities in this resource and use the ‘extend' or ‘simplify' suggestions for learners of different ages and stages.
There is an accompanying Film Literacy Activities pack available to download which contains worksheets referred to in the Powerpoint presentation.
We love to hear how educators have used our resources.Contact us
We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
