One of our key aims when we started our business was to make it easier for education professionals to access secondary mental health resources. It is widely agreed that mental health of children is a key area to cover, but often educators and childcare professionals find that they don’t have the right tools available to manage and discuss mental health issues. Our mental health resources are designed in consultation with widely respected independent mental health consultant Marilyn Tucknott to meet the needs of professionals and children across every stage of development. As well as personal journals for independent use, we offer a variety of tools and resources for staff to support the mental and emotional well-being of the children in their care, helping professionals at every level to meet and exceed the DfE and Ofsted guidelines for mental health.

For the secondary education sector, we have created some Secondary Mental Health Resources with this in mind.

  • Aimed at independent use by children at KS2/3, this Mental Wealth Journal assumes a year of transitions, a period of changes in school, changes in the body and increasing freedoms that require youngsters to make reflective and appropriate choices.
  • Subtitled ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff’, this KS4 Mental Health Journal’s starting point is that there is much to be angry about - from personal issues to worldwide concerns. It explains that this high state of arousal has an impact upon the body and upon the clarity of the mind. Aimed at 14-15 year olds, it addresses the young person who is feeling overwhelmed, thinking about things that could go wrong and who has a roller-coaster emotions.
  • Stress Hearts

    £3.70£5.00 exc. VAT
  • Practical Solutions for Managing Behaviour and Mental Health in Schools is a realistic guide for classroom teachers who need to respond to the Department for Education’s publication of March 2016. The publications explains the rationale for a school’s responsibility, teaching and learning styles that support positive mental health and some guidance on approaches to the main types of mental health problems - in short, it genuinely offers Practical Solutions!
  • Mental Health and Behaviour in Schools for Managers is a response to the Department for Education’s publication of March 2016. The DfE non-statutory advice clarifies the responsibility of the schools, outlines what you can to support a child or young person’s whose behaviour may be related to an unmet mental health need.
  • Small and discreet enough to fit in a blazer pocket, the Live Out Loud Self-Awareness Journal looks like a used notebook. The images are graffiti and scribble-like, as if someone had been doodling. The pages appear thumbed and ink-stained. In fact, it looks subversive which is entirely in keeping with the polarised behaviour and opinions of this age group. Neuroscience tells us that the teenage brain is going through a pruning process, reworking its pathways. This Journal allows the young person to explore those things to which they are ‘at cause’ and to which they are ‘at effect’, asking them to take a position of empowerment as they move into being a young adult.
  • Using Mental Health Standards
