Assembly Content

The live virtual assembly will be led by our Director of Kindness, Greig Trout, an experienced facilitator who runs workshops for tens of thousands of children every year. Greig will deliver a fun and engaging presentation covering:

  • What is Children’s Mental Health Week / why we celebrate it
  • What is mental health?
  • How everyone struggles with their thoughts and feelings sometimes – it’s perfectly normal.
  • Ways we can look after our mental health (including things such as talking to a trusted person, exercise, nutrition, spending time in nature , friendships and kindness).
  • The science of kindness and the role kindness / self-kindness can play in improving our mental health.
  • The theme of Children’s Mental Health Week – ‘Your Voice Matters’ (linked to article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child).
  • Concluding with a quick quiz/recap.
  • You will also receive a printable activity sheet for children to use after the assembly. This will be sent to you a week prior to the assembly.
