48 Questions to help children and young people
- learn more about mental health

Simple and easy to use, these question cards are designed to help explore and develop children and young people’s understanding about mental health, including: what it is; how good mental health can be maintained; and how to access help when needed.
The cards can be used to enable pupils to explore their own mental health and to better understand and empathise with others.
We know that conversations about mental health can be difficult – sometimes because people assume we mean mental illness rather than mental health.
If used sensitively by a trusted adult, these cards will encourage children and young people to talk about mental health without feeling it is a taboo subject.
