MindMate Champions Bulletins:

We recommend that, with all video content linked within the bulletins, staff watch the videos in their entirety to check they are happy with the content before they show them in school. Content warnings can usually be found in the description of the youtube video.

Children and Young People told us they wanted to learn more about their mental health before they had issues, so we created MindMate Lessons, a modern Social, Emotional and Mental Health curriculum for Key Stage 1-4 to help them do just that.

MindMate Lessons have been written by a range of teachers, mental health professionals and consultants in partnership with other relevant services and groups. They are designed to fit into your PSHE curriculum, in a modern, engaging and evidence based manner as part of the MindMate Champions whole school approach.

They have been designed with as much thought for ease of use for school staff as for teaching essential skills to pupils. Everything can be accessed online so you can filter for year group, download the PowerPoint lessons, lesson plans and resources all in one place.

You can also leave your thoughts, review and requests for us. We’d love to hear from you and any good ideas for improvements you might have. We will continuously add additions, improvements and amendments so please check back regularly for latest versions.
