Mental health conversation starter tool
This useful tool, created by Time to Change Wales, encourages pupils to discuss mental health with others.
You can find this resource in Welsh here.
Originally produced for Time To Talk Day 2020, this simple conversation starter tool encourages pupils to reach out to others in their life to talk about mental health.
The tool is a typical paper ‘fortune teller’ game, which pupils will need to cut out and fold together. They’ll then work through the game to find an action they can take, including things like ‘tell someone you appreciate what they’ve done for you’ or ‘have a chat over some lunch with someone’.
