Mental Wellbeing

Wellbeing workshops for schools, designed for relationships education. Plus free resources for PSHE lessons and fantastic wellbeing activities for primary schools.


Mental wellbeing in schools is, rightly, a hot topic at the moment. It’s vital we teach young people it's ok to talk about your feelings and provide them with strategies to cope with stress. But it can be hard to know where to start. To make teacher’s lives easier, we’ve designed wellbeing workshops that are grounded in science. Delivered by our expert presenters, they all have a degree related to psychology or neuroscience and are confident tackling students' tricky questions about emotional wellbeing  and mental health.


We've also put together a selection of free resources for PSHE lessons and fantastic mental wellbeing activities for primary schools that are a great resource for a wellbeing week or drop down day focused on relationships education.


Mental Wellbeing Workshops

Our wellbeing workshops for schools are perfect activities for PSHE lessons or drop down days focused on mental wellbeing and resilience. They are highly interactive and engaging, making a potentially challenging subject fun and memorable. We love answering kids' questions, encouraging the class to talk about their emotions and sharing tips to boost emotional wellbeing.


Building a Resilient Brain introduces students to the idea of resilience, or ‘bounce-back-ability’ through a fun, interactive tower-building task. And in Science and Creativity we explore the uniqueness of each of our amazing brains, as well as the wellbeing benefits of creative hobbies like mindful colouring. As with all our workshops for schools, we adapt the content for different ages, adding more in-depth discussion of mental health conditions and school stress for KS3.

Science and Creativity Workshop
Versions for Ages 7-16 | KS2, KS3, KS4

This hands-on session introduces students to the links between science and art, and the importance of creativity for STEM careers as they get the chance to unleash their own creative abilities!

Explore the science of wellbeing, boost your resilience and learn some mental health self-care techniques. For KS2 we look at how to recognise emotions and talk about your feelings, while with KS3 we add topics like dealing with stress and anxiety at school and introduce common mental health conditions such as depression.

Explore what it means to be ‘normal’, and whether such a thing exists at all. We dive into statistics, genetics, evolution and brain plasticity as we discover the huge amounts of variability that exist in the human population – and perhaps how this impacts on biomedical research and discovery.

Did you know that spending time in nature is good for your health? This emotional wellbeing worksheet gives young people a glimpse into just one of the reasons it's vital to protect our natural environment- because our wellbeing depends on it. 

Nature and Wellbeing

Spending time outdoors can: reduce stress; restore your energy; improve your immune system; increase your self-esteem; make you happier; help your brain to develop; improve your working memory; make it easier to pay attention in school; make you feel calm and relaxed; give you a sense of purpose in life; help you be kinder and more generous to others; increase the chance of making choices that will help the environment; and create a sense of awe and wonder. Pretty amazing right?!
