Just Talk lesson plans

Focused on the key messages that we know will resonate with boys, these lesson plans will help to raise awareness of mental health and dispel myths around mental ill health.
They will also provide an opportunity to explore some of the things pupils can do to help promote their emotional wellbeing.

One has been developed for use in PE and another for classroom use e.g. PSHE:

Just Talk school engagement activities

We really need your help to make Just Talk a success.

On Wednesday 21 February 2018, there will be a professional event to share the key successes and learning points of the campaign so far.
We will be inviting schools to showcase some of their success stories at this event should you wish to do so.

To show our appreciation we will also be awarding certificates and offering training and/or resources up to the value of £500 to the school that has shown the most dedication and commitment to the campaign.

Just Talk speaker directory

During the week starting Monday 22 January 2018, a number of local professionals have made themselves available to help support your campaign work within the school.  If you would like to invite one of them to come in and do an assembly for your pupils, please use the speaker directory to get in touch with them:

Level 2 - assessment of need

This helps mental health leads to know what questions to ask to understand more about the needs of a pupil that staff are concerned about. They are generally open ended to encourage exploration when information has not been volunteered or raised by the pupil or parents. These questions need to be asked by an experienced pastoral professional – one of the questions asks about suicidal thoughts. 

Mental health and emotional wellbeing in schools training slides

If you have attended the one day course; ‘Everything you need to know about mental health – almost!’ you may wish to use some of these slides to disseminate the learning within your own school. These slides can be adapted to tailor your session to the needs of your school. These slides must not be posted online.
