Let's talk! Mental health discussion toolkit

Design, Education, Mental health, Toolkit, Workshop, Illustration

This is a toolkit I designed for assisting teachers to deliver mental health education in primary and secondary schools. It was designed after personally running workshops on mental health related topics in secondary schools in UK and also sending out a survey to teachers and educators.

The workshop activities are based on scenario cases, discussion and brainstorming. The content is easy for a non mental health qualified professional to deliver. The main objectives were:
a) educate about the different mental health problems,
b) find out where to ask for help or how to help a friend when in need,
c) promote the importance of opening up.
