What will I learn?

All of us have mental health and, like our bodies, our minds can become unwell. 1 in 10 young people will experience a mental health problem. That is 3 people in your classroom right now. These include depression, anxiety disorder, eating disorders, psychosis or bipolar disorder. It is important to talk about mental health and get help early if things don’t feel right, just like we would for our physical health. No one should feel ashamed about having a mental health problem, in the same way you wouldn’t if you had a broken leg.

This learning trunk recognises the fundamental role that mental health plays in children’s success and that poor mental health is a significant barrier to learning.
