By talking openly about mental health from a young age, children can learn to better understand their emotions, break down stigma, and feel safe enough to reach out for help when it’s needed.


Talking about mental health and expressing our feelings can be difficult, no matter our age. In this toolkit, we’ve rounded up lots of great resources to help children, staff and families start the mental health conversation.


As we enter into another lockdown, it’s more important than ever to share how we’re feeling with others. Many of these resources can be used for remote learning, and they can all be used to keep the conversation going once schools return.
