World Mental Health Day 2023
ITV and STV have launched a new initiative from the UK’s most recognised mental health campaign, "Britain Get Talking". The initiative wants to encourage every school in the country to set a different kind of homework ahead of World Mental Health Day on 10th October. Designed in collaboration with a psychologist and the teaching community, the task encourages young people to have a proper chat with an adult they trust about the hardest subject on their minds.
A different kind of homework
Mental Health has declined in almost 40% of school children (NHS Survey). That’s why Britain Get Talking is setting the nation a different kind of homework. It’s designed to help ease our stress and reduce our anxiety by asking what's on our minds. Have a chat tonight or take part in our national homework exercise this World Mental Health Day, 10th October. You don’t need a pen or paper, but if you’re unsure where to start, please see the guidance below. Further details can be found by clicking on the following link - National Mental Health day
