‘What’s On Your Mind?’ See Me tackling stigma in schools
20th November 2018
See Me Scotland have developed a resource for teachers and young people to help tackle the culture of stigma and discrimination in schools.
See Me take a whole school approach to tackling mental health stigma and discrimination. This means addressing issues faced by everyone in the school, the pupils, teachers and all other staff.
See Me have developed a new free resource pack called ‘What’s On Your Mind?’ to support schools to learn about mental health and develop the skills and confidence to tackle stigma and discrimination in school and the wider community.
The pack is designed to be used with young people between the ages of 11 and 18. It’s relevant for everyone who wants to understand young people’s mental health better. The pack is split into three modules — Building confidence, taking action & stigma — which have been built around the four capacities outlined in the Curriculum for Excellence as well as addressing key learning outcomes of the Health and Wellbeing Curriculum:
- Mental and emotional wellbeing
- Social Wellbeing
- Physical Wellbeing
The pack contains a wide range of practical tools. Each activity is designed to last up to 50 minutes with content including:
- A common language that is understood by teachers and young people
- Symptoms of mental illness and what to look out for
- Asking for support – what to say, who to ask
- Signposting for help
