On Our Sleeves: Teaching Children about Mental Health

Grades: Elementary & Middle (3-8)
Subject Area: Health & Wellness, Social-Emotional Learning
Made Possible By: Nationwide Children’s Hospital

One in five children today is living with a mental illness. That’s why it’s time to start talking about children’s mental health. Use these resources to support your students. The middle school program will help students learn about empathy and self-care, and encourages classes to Take a Day Time Break to support mental wellness. The program for elementary school will help students explore their feelings and discover strategies for coping with stressful feelings. Use the take-home letter to bring students’ families into your classroom conversation. Help On Our Sleeves® break the stigma of silence so we can transform children’s mental health.
