Why Teach Mental Wellbeing?

Featured Image

We have just started to take the first bookings of our new Talking Heads programme on mental wellbeing. We are really excited about this programme and it explores issues we have wanted to engage with schools and young people on for a while.

But why? Why do we think it is important and why are schools asking for this work?

Well….here are a few stats to help explain why this is needed:

  • 3 students in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem.
  • 50% of mental health problems are established by age 14.
  • 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
  • 25% average increase in referrals to CAMHS.

We can help your school to raise awareness of mental health with young people, provide encouragement and routes to early support and ways to manage their own mental wellbeing.

What people say

Take a look at how we’ve helped others

Brilliant acting and interaction with the children. The play itself covered puberty in an open, realistic and humorous way which forms a terrific basis for future discussion with the teacher and each other. So much depends on the enthusiasm of the actors and I feel that we were very lucky to have such a talented pair, not only to perform, but to lead the discussions afterwards. They were able to relate to the children without any embarrassment. SUPERB!!


Compared to other companies we have had covering the same content, the actors were more flexible and accommodating to the children’s individual needs. Through their answers and questions, the children were demonstrating a higher level of understanding, empathy and personal safety.
