The Government’s Youth Mental Health Ambassador, Dr Alex George, presents this series of five films on First News Education TV developed with the Department for Education and Sky Kids. In the series, dedicated to mental health and wellbeing, Dr Alex teams up with FYI presenters, experts and celebrities to investigate simple ways to deal with the pressures of life.
Each episode highlights the importance of being physically and mentally healthy. The series will air on Sky Kids throughout the summer of 2021. The team will investigate just how important a good night’s sleep is, how exercise and what you eat can have a massive impact on your mind, and the importance of speaking out when you are feeling down.
The accompanying teacher notes include follow up discussion points and activities for each episode. They are freely available to support teachers explore these aspects of mental health with students in the classroom, summer schools or holiday activities.
