FREE Mental Health Book Club for School Mental Health Leads
Who is it for?
The book club is for staff working with children and young people who are keen to discover new resources or build on their knowledge and skills about emotional wellbeing and mental health.
What can I expect?
Once a term you will receive a book and associated resources with the aim of boosting your understanding, skills, confidence or ideas when working to promote or support the mental health of children and young people. For an idea of the kind of books you can expect, take a look at:
50th Anniversery of Martin Luther King's Visit to the UK
Aimed at students aged 7 – 16, the free pack contains lesson activities and ideas to help them explore the legacy of Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement.
It has been created by researchers at Newcastle University, working with colleagues at Northumbria University, staff and students at Archbishop Runcie C of E First School, Newcastle, Gosforth Central School, Newcastle, Ovingham First School, Northumberland and the Newcastle University-based Martin Luther King Peace Committee.

The Aviva Community Fund is now open!
Do you know a local project that needs funding?
For community projects, an ordinary thing can mean everything, but funding can be a problem. The Aviva Community Fund is back, offering support and funding to causes that make a real difference where you live.
All you have to do is tell us what you would do with the money and just how much of a difference it could make to the community. If you took part last year, you can submit the same project or a new one. Only the top-voted projects in each category will make it through to the Finals, so make sure you tell everyone about your project and its importance to the community.
Tea & Talk in conjunction with World Mental Health Day- 10th October 2017
Tea & Talk is our national fundraising event which takes place on or around World Mental Health Day - 10 October each year.
All you have to do is get together with a group of friends, family or colleagues, put the kettle on and invite them to make a donation to the Mental Health Foundation - it’s as simple as that!
Don't feel stuck if October is no good for you though - you can hold Tea & Talks at any time of the year.
