It’s World Mental Health Day. But how do you support your students’ mental health throughout the year?
It’s so important to talk to young people about mental health, so they can help themselves and others.
Our Make Life Kind Charity School Speakers can help!
“World Mental Health Day (10 Oct) is a day to talk about mental health and show everyone that mental health matters. It’s also a day to let people know that it’s okay to ask for help, no matter what you’re going through.
“As the theme of World Mental Health Day highlights, ‘mental health is a universal human right’. That’s why at Mental Health Foundation, we’re dedicated to addressing the inequalities in mental health and working towards good mental health for all, not just for some.
“This year, over 260,000 people have had a Tea & Talk for World Mental Health Day – raising vital funds for mental health! Every donation supports our life-changing work and brings us closer to a world with good mental health for all.” – Mental Health Foundation
Make Life Kind Charity
Our community angle, Make Life Kind, is now officially a charity!
Through Make Life Kind, we partner with an incredible team of School Speakers who cover stigmatised topics in education, such as: diversity, wellness, LGBTQ+, neurodiversity, disabilities, drug crime, knife crime… and mental health!
So, how can we drive mental health and anxiety awareness into schools?
Meet our Mental Health School Speakers
Our Make Life Kind Charity was set up in collaboration with our team of incredible school speakers. On a mission to work together to fight stigmas and drive diversity, wellness and safety awareness into the education sector.
Fighting all of the stigmas around mental health struggles, helping young people to thrive through adversity.
