Mental Health Lesson In Person OR Distance Learning


This lesson was created to help upper elementary students understand the basics of mental health and wellness, including things that help vs. hurt our mental health, and signs they need to ask for help. It does not explicitly teach about depression, anxiety, or other mental health disorders, nor is it about lessening mental health disorder stigmas. The focus is on providing students developmentally appropriate information to help them take good care of their own mental health.

There are three different options for how this lesson can be given to your students:
1. In Person Lesson:
-Counselor presents the slides. Students complete a trifold worksheet/brochure during or after the presentation
2. (Distance Learning) Self-Guided:
-Students go through all of the slides independently, reading the ones talking about the transitions and completing the activities on the interactive slides
3. (Distance Learning) Video Presentation + Activities:
-Add your own narration to the PowerPoint then export it as a video to share with students
-Then share just the interactive slides with them to complete
You can post the slides as an assignment in Google Classroom™ (just make sure to select “make a copy for each student”) or you can share with any student (or parent) that has a Google login. It also will work as a PowerPoint assignment for Microsoft Teams (just download it from Google Slides and then upload it – it downloads as a PowerPoint!).

What others are saying...

“Loved using this with my 4th and 5th grade students! Such an important theme for these difficult times, when mental health and well being is crucial. All of my students were able to share things they learned and goals to improve their personal mental health, and I received many compliments from classroom teachers and appreciation for sharing this particular lesson. Very worthwhile purchase!”

“Yes, yes, and YES! I was asked to present mental health and wellness to 5th and 6th graders (three classes per grade!) and struggled with how I could possibly condense such a topic. This resource encompassed everything necessary AND allowed me an entire Sunday to myself so I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. Thank you!”

“It was very easy to use with both and students found it engaging. My 5th graders in particular were very interested in the topic and it made for some great jumping-off points for further discussion. The material also translated well to providing parents with some information and ideas for this time.”
