Mental Wellbeing - Primary





Medium (5-11 activities)


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.

What our educators say

"As an alternative provision for learners who are not in mainstream school we use your resources in a slightly different way as they generally find it hard to watch a full length film. They are, however fantastic. "
