Planning a lesson
When planning a lesson on mental health you may consider covering the following topics:
- What is mental health?
- How can we look after our mental health?
- What might cause mental illness?
- The link between, thoughts, emotions and behaviour
- When does something become a mental illness?
- The stigma of mental illness
- The importance on culture and context
- Where to go for support
- How to support a friend
It should be noted that some students may find the topic of mental wellbeing distressing especially if they, a friend or family member suffer with mental illness. Teachers should be mindful that a certain amount of sensitivity is required from them. Both at the start and end of the lesson students should be encouraged to seek support if they find themselves distressed by what has been discussed.
