Designed for teachers and educators of secondary-aged students, Mindfulness Through Film explores how film watching and filmmaking can be used to introduce mindfulness principles and exercises.  

 

Created in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation, this course includes a variety of film-based strategies to enable you and your learners to confidently engage with mindfulness. Discover how film can help you tap into the mental health benefits of mindfulness, such as enhancing focus, promoting self-regulation, increasing resilience, and improving interpersonal skills.  

 

Along the way, we’ll give you practical advice on how to deliver these activities, and provide you with techniques to promote greater wellbeing. Throughout the course, you will be able to share learning experiences with fellow educators and have exclusive access to free downloadable lesson resources that will equip you with everything you need to get started with your students.  

 

By the end of the course, you will be able to:  

  • Present strategies to help students acknowledge their thoughts and feelings and learn to respond to them productively  
  • Use stills and highlights from films to support learners in managing their mental and emotional health   
  • Facilitate filmmaking in lessons to encourage creativity, promote personal expression and strengthen communication skills 
  • Navigate how to take time out to care for your own mental wellbeing.  

 

“I think film is helpful to explore mental health because it gives young people the chance to do it in an objective way… they think about their own experiences but they don’t necessarily talk about their own experiences. They have the opportunity to discuss things from a third person kind of view.”
