Head-ED Lite

Head-ED Lite is a series of 12 tutorial/form period sessions based upon the Head-ED scheme of work.  Each session has been designed to last around 15 mins and covers the main themes of Head-ED: education about mental health and illness, challenging stigma and encouraging students to manage their own mental health through Mindfulness.  As many of the activities in Head-ED Lite are based on the full Head-ED scheme, we do not recommend using these alongside one another in a class.

Head-ED Lite was designed for upper KS3/KS4 groups but is suitable for use in vertical form groups as well.  All resources and session plans are free for schools to use and adapt accordingly.
