We are committed to working with local schools to support them to raise awareness of mental health stigma amongst their pupils, staff and parents.

We have produced two schools resource packs – one for primary schools (Key Stages 1 and 2) and another for secondary schools (Key Stages 3 and 4).
The packs have been specially developed with the support and input of a number of education professionals, for use by teachers in Personal Social Health and Economic (PSHE) Education lessons.
They contain a variety of useful information, lesson plans and materials to raise awareness of mental health and learning disability stigma in schools.
The key aims of the packs are:
- To provide teachers with a range of varied and comprehensive ready-to-use lesson plans for use in PSHE / Citizenship lessons on the topics of mental health, learning disabilities and stigma
- To introduce young people to a range of issues that people with mental ill-health and learning disabilities have to deal with
- To examine the words people may use to describe people with mental ill-health and learning disabilities and understand why they are wrong
