Assemblies are a powerful way of getting the message about mental health out to your students. We have a range of assemblies ready for you to deliver.
10 minute assemblies
We have two 10-minute assemblies you can deliver in your school:
- The Stand Up Kid: this assembly uses our Stand up kid video to get students talking about mental health stigma.
- Small things: this assembly encourages students to think about the small things they could do to support their friends and classmates.
15 minute assemblies:
- 15 minute assembly and guidance notes
- Chris' Story: this assembly features the story of Chris, who experienced psychosis.
If you have a small group, use one of our ready-made session plans to get your students talking and thinking about mental health.
- Mental health spectrum exercise: this exercise uses case studies to help your students to understand the difference between good wellbeing and poor wellbeing.
- Mental health quiz, true or false: this short quiz will help your students to think about what they already know about mental health, and hopefully also learn something new!
- Graffiti wall: this exercise will get your students brainstorming and discussing the difference between 'mental health' and 'mental illness'.
- Conversation starter: divide your class into pairs or groups and get them to play this fortune teller-style game to start conversations about mental health.
