Time to talk, time to change

Time To Change is England’s biggest programme that aims to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination.  They have a great website that’s full of ideas, blogs from people living with mental ill health, videos and resources.  It has a section specifically for young people with advice for parents and resources for professionals working with young people. 

Their #timetotalk campaign aims to get people talking about the difficult subject of how people are feeling.  They believe the little things can make a big difference.

If you develop a mental health project or use some of the resources for lessons, please let me know.  I’d love to speak with you and your students about your experience.

Eat Better Feel Better

Happy New Year and welcome back to work.  The start of a new year often makes people think about their lifestyles and can give them the motivation they need to make some improvements to their health.

Right on time, the Scottish Government is launching its Eat Better Feel Better campaign.  This campaign aims to inspire and support parents and families to make healthy changes to how they shop, cook and eat, with the aim of improving their health.
