Anna Freud’s new animation and teacher toolkit: “We all have Mental Health” is now available, and is being emailed to every secondary school in England.
The animation is co-produced with young people. It tells the story of Sasha and André who are struggling with their emotions. Sasha experiences the ‘everyday’ feelings that we all feel, which can feel powerful at times but which do not interfere with the way we function. André’s feelings on the other hand are overwhelming and persistent.
Our aim is to encourage young people to have the confidence to be open about their mental health and to know how and when to ask for support. By encouraging openness, and reminding them that We all have mental health, we hope that young people will share and listen so that any problems they are facing can be addressed at the earliest possible stage.
You can download the animation and resources here.
Anna Freud are calling on secondary schools to teach the We all have mental health assembly plan on World Mental Health Day (10th October). If you do, they would love for you to share pictures and feedback with them on social media: @AFNCCF #Weallhavementalhealth

Don’t forget you can use our Charity Award nominated Talking Mental Health animation and teacher toolkit with year 5 and 6 pupils. Download now and teach the lesson or assembly on World Mental Health Day.
