Do you find it difficult to incorporate mental health and wellbeing into the average school day? To help, we have created a simple calendar for the 2020 autumn term to help you plan ahead.

It highlights curriculum themes and occasions where mental health can be explored and celebrated. It also highlights some points in the school year where stress or anxiety levels in the school community may be higher.

For each section we have suggested ideas for what schools can do, and resources to support any activity planned.

We'll be producing a calendar for each term of the school year. To find out when the next one is produced, sign up to our newsletter.
