Mental wellbeing is an extremely important issue with young people, and film can be a wonderful tool for helping them explore their feelings and broach difficult subjects. Thought-provoking films can allow young people to discuss the many difficult and complex issues associated with mental wellbeing in an accessible way. Using film can help develop emotional understanding and resilience, while the act of filmmaking itself can provide a powerful means of self-expression and creative outlet.

Hosted by the Mental Health FoundationMental Health Awareness Week takes place in 2018 from 14 - 20 May and is this year based around the theme of 'stress'. To mark Mental Health Awareness Week we have re-launched this Mental Wellbeing page, which is focused on helping educators and young people engage with mental health issues.
