Talking Mental Health


Audience: children, young people, healthcare professionals, parents

Talking Mental Health is an animation designed to help begin conversations about mental health. The film was designed with a classroom setting in mind  but the principles can also apply to a healthcare setting, as well as to every day home and family life. It aims to give children:

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