The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families shared this animation entitled "Talking Mental Health". The video targets primary school pupils and was developed via collaboration with children. It aims at giving children:

  • An understanding of what mental health is and the difference between every day small feelings and a big feeling
  • Consistent and accessible language to talk about mental health
  • An understanding of how to be a good listener

In addition, the Anna Freud centre have developed a Teacher Toolkit to be used by school staff in parallel to the animation. You can find out more about it on the Anna Freud website where you can also watch a behind the scenes video as well as an introduction to the animation by the centre's Patron - Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
