Mental Wellbeing & Identity





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. The films in this strand highlight characters achieving this with very varying degrees of success.

There is an accompanying Film Literacy Activities pack available to download which contains worksheets referred to in the Powerpoint presentation.

Updating our resources

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.
