World Book Day - Supporting Mental Health
In order to celebrate World Book Day on the 4th March, the MHST team has produced a series of posters to highlight some of our top picks of books that can help children and adults discuss emotions and mental health issues. Books can be a brilliant way of opening up discussions and giving children a language in which to talk about complex feelings. There is also a graphic of the benefits of reading to boost Mental Health.
Below are some links to other reading lists around children’s mental health.
KEY STAGE 1
This list mentions books around mental health and self-care for various ages and reading abilities (clearly sectioned out)
NORTHORPE HALL CHILD AND FAMILY TRUST.
Our Mental Health Support Team have created a series of bitesize, introductory videos around understanding and supporting children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing. These videos are aimed at children and their grown-ups and are best watched together to promote conversations around mental health. If support is required for a child or young person, then please speak to your Emotional Wellbeing Lead in school who is Mrs Justine Myers.
The link to the videos are below. This topic has a video for both KS1 and KS2, although future videos may be more appropriate for just KS2.
