Mental Health Awareness Day


It was a day where schools (including primary schools) join together to show their support of the Mental Health Stigma Programme. The day provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of mental health stigma to young people in lots of interesting, fun and inclusive ways.

What's happening on the day?

A set of resources for secondary schools, focusing on how parents/carers, teachers & others people working with young people can support young people with their mental health. The 'All I Ask' resources include: 
  • All I ask guides for distribution in school
  • Posters to promote the guide
  • PowerPoint presentation for use in assembly
  • Information leaflets
  • Mental Health Awareness Day wristband for each student
For further information about these resources please contact Tessa Parkinson:

This year we will also be repeating Challenge Tessa! In order to promote Northamptonshires Mental Health Awareness Day Tessa Parkinson, one of the Programme Managers for the Mental Health Stigma Programme in Northamptonshire has been challenged to visit as many schools as possible. So in the lead-up to the day, Tessa will be visiting over 70 schools, getting an MHSP boiler suit stamped by students, having photos taken with staff and pupils/students and delivering key mental health messages and resources for schools to use on February 10.
