Mental Health & Wellbeing Workshops for Schools
Interactive and theatre based mental health & wellbeing training.
OpenView Education’s interactive Mental Health & Wellbeing Workshops for schools use theatre and drama to equip students with skills and strategies for promoting positive mental health, building resilience and cultivating wellbeing.
Our wellbeing & mental health workshops provide a fun and engaging way for your students to learn evidence based mindfulness techniques that are shown to improve wellbeing and raise awareness around mental health.
We have engaging and age appropriate workshops for Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 students.
These workshops are the ideal way to mark the occasion for Mental Health Awareness Week.
THEATRE AND DRAMA
Drama and performance techniques for an engaging and interactive learning experience.
We have workshops for students of all ages and we can work with a large number of students in one day.
Your visit includes lesson plans, animations and PowerPoints making follow up easy for your teachers.
We understand value for money is important for schools. We offer affordable whole school events.
We use evidence based & proven approaches for improving wellbeing in children & adults.
Students will learn what happens in our brain when we feel worried, stressed or angry and how these emotions are a normal and natural part of life.
Through a simple but powerful mindfulness practice students will have the experience of how we can manage our emotions and develop wellbeing. We guide students through the practice and show them when, where and how they can use it.
What is resilience, and how can we build more of it? Your students will learn positive coping strategies that will help them to decelop positive mental health and respond to daily challenges more effectively.
Big Life Changes:
Going through a big life change, can sometimes make us feel worried, upset or angry. We show students how we can respond to these emotions through talking about our feelings with parents, carers and teachers, and through using our mindfulness practice.
Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness:
In our mental health workshops students will learn what self-awareness is and why it can be useful, along with simple strategies for developing our self-confidence when we need it the most.

‘Highly engaging facilitator. The messages given and rehearsed were well remembered by the children. The children were really involved and wanted to participate which meant that the messages had an impact on their ideas. Great day!’

How many students can you work with?
Our mental health workshops for schools are interactive, and our facilitators make a special effort to ensure all students are engaged and taking part.
This is why we work with up to 30 students from the same year group at a time.
Sessions are differentiated for each year group.
We can deliver 5 workshops across one day.
This allows us to work with around 150 students per day.
What do you need to run the workshops?
- One cleared space for the day: The school hall is ideal but a cleared classroom can also work well.
- Projector and sound equipment: Along with the theatre and drama techniques, the wellbeing workshops also includes original animations to support your students learning.
How much do the workshops cost?
We aim to make our wellbeing workshops for schools excellent value. We have packages starting from £330.
We can work with seperate class or year group bubbles, and structure your day in a way that works with your social distancing requirements.
