Anna Freud Animations

Ahead of World Mental Health Day, on Thursday 10th October, we wanted to remind schools and services about Anna Freud's two animations 'Talking Mental Health', aimed at primary school pupils, and 'We all have mental health', aimed at Key Stage 3 secondary pupils (years 7-9).

Both of the animations were developed with pupils and are accompanied by corresponding teacher toolkits, including assembly and lesson plans and ideas which you can tailor to your pupils needs. We hope these animations will help provide children and young people with consistent and accessible language to talk about their mental health and to know who to ask for help if they need it.

You can watch both animations below and download the teacher toolkits through our Schools in Mind resource page.  

Members can contact Anna Freud directly at and follow and share resources on FacebookTwitter Instagram and YouTube.
