Protecting Our Mental Health


The two worksheets below have been designed by Our Time as part of our Who Cares? Schools programme. Both resources support students to identify the challenges they are facing and the strategies that they can create and implement in order to cope with these challenges.

These resources are as useful for us adults as they are for children and young people! As professionals working in the field of mental health, it is vital to keep an eye on our own mental health in order to ensure that we are best placed to support others.

Please download both sheets and complete them from your own personal perspective. Do you feel that these would be useful resources to offer the children and young people that you work with?

Please share your thoughts on this question and your experiences of completing this task with other learners, using the comments section.
