Four short In Your Corner sessions are below. They run for around 10 to 15 minutes each and work particularly well when one session is run per week for four weeks – in assemblies, tutorials or in another group setting. They're ready to run in PowerPoint and each one has a guidance document and instructions in the note panels. The content is primarily designed for ages 11 to 18.

Download the guidance notes for information about how to run the campaign, the four sessions available and other resources you can use. 

The sessions

Session 1: Listen, Don't Judge

A video of spoken word artist Suli Breaks introduces the session, which explores what we think of when we hear the term ‘mental health’, that we all have mental health (like we all have physical health), and how stigma and discrimination can affect people who experience mental health problems. 

Session 2: Be In A Mate's Corner

What makes a good friend, how might our behaviour affect the way our friends feel, and how can we be there for our friends when they need us?

The session incorporates five short, funny In Your Corner films with friends Eric and Guy. There is also a video clip from rap battle artist Charlotte Turnbull.

Session 3: Ask Twice

Sometimes people say they’re fine when they’re not. This session explores the reasons why you might ask twice when someone says “I’m fine” to “How are you?”, and the different ways you can do just that. It incorporates Time to Change’s Ask Twice film.

Session 4: Using Your Voice

In order to look out for others, we also have to look out for ourselves. Here, we recap sessions 1, 2 and 3, discuss self-care, how it’s OK to talk about mental health, and explore how young people can actively campaign around mental health. There is also a clip from a Speak Up rap battle event with the option to run a creative session around spoken word or similar expression.
