Videos

Videos can be a great way to engage young people and get them talking about mental health. We have short films, young people talking about their own experiences and information videos to use in a range of settings. Some of our videos come with session plans, to help you make the most of these resources and run hassle-free lessons. Make sure you visit our Youtube channel for many more videos about mental health.

Interactive story

Our online interactive story 'The Kid and I' allows your young people to play out a day in the life of John, a character who has recently had some time off school due to a mental illness. You can influence his actions and decide how he interacts with his peers, helping give some insight into how mental health stigma might affect someone. Complete John's level and you can unlock two more characters, a fellow student and one of John's teachers. The Kid and I comes with sessions plans and a user guide to turn the game into a classroom activity.
