Grades: , , ,


What does mental health mean? What is mental wellness? What helps and hurts our mental health? If these are important questions you want your students to understand the answers to, this mental health lesson for elementary students is what you need!

This lesson was created to help students understand the basics of mental health and mental 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 with developmentally appropriate information to help them take good care of their own mental health!

This resource includes:

  • Slideshow presentation (in PowerPoint and Google Slides (TM) formats)
  • Printable trifold worksheet for processing and self-awareness
  • Interactive Google Slides (TM) for a digital reflection option

This resource was created to be used either for traditional online learning or in a virtual school setting. You can also deliver the lesson in person and have students complete the activities digitally!

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.”
