Mental health and emotional wellbeing lesson plans

Mental health and emotional wellbeing lesson plans


We have re-designed and relaunched our mental health and emotional wellbeing lesson plans for key stages 1 to 4 in line with our updated teacher guidance and in time for schools to plan for new statutory PSHE requirements regarding Health Education, Relationships Education and RSE. These lesson plans will enable schools to cover relevant content from the government’s statutory Health Education, Relationships Education and RSE guidance. PowerPoint versions are also available exclusively to Association members.

Lessons in key stage 1 and 2 include teaching about:

  • Identifying and talking about feelings
  • Understanding how feelings affect behaviours
  • Strategies to manage feelings
  • The link between mental and physical health
  • Managing the transition to secondary school / key stage 3

Lessons in key stage 3 and 4 include teaching about:

  • Challenging stigma related to mental health
  • Promoting emotional wellbeing and healthy coping strategies
  • Developing ‘digital resilience’ in the context of online pressures
  • Reframing negative thinking
  • Awareness of unhealthy coping strategies such as self-harm and eating disorders
  • Awareness of common mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression

To access the PDF lesson plans and resources, please download the zipped folders at the bottom of this page.
