Positive Minds; Education is a 10-week wellbeing programme combining classroom and practical based activities to engage Year 6 students in the topic of mental health. Year 6 is a time of transition, during which young people are more likely to experience and develop mental health issues. Our programme has been developed to support students ahead of this change, to help them increase their knowledge, and instil key tools to improve and support their wellbeing.
The aim of the programme is for students to be able to:
• Understand what mental health is and what it means to them.
• Identify at least 3 healthy coping strategies that are specific to them as individuals.
• Identify their support network and some local mental health support services.
“We felt positive minds was so successful this year at our school, we are very keen to [participate] again in the next academic year.”
“We loved having the program over the last two years and are hoping to have it again next year.”
“Our children loved [the programme] during this academic year and we would love to do it again next year with our Year 6s. I think it was very beneficial to them, too.”
“We loved working with Positive Minds; last year and I know the children would be thrilled to have you back.”
