With waiting lists for children’s mental health services getting longer than ever, and pupils sometimes having to wait for years before they get appointments, schools and parents are having to be more proactive than ever when it comes to promoting and developing good mental health in their children. Helping children recognise and manage their feelings, build good self-esteem and understand that everyone is different but important are key stepping stones in the promotion of good mental health.
The Level Headers series (from b small publishing) is full of games and activities which have been carefully designed by inclusion expert, Beth Cox, and confidence coach, Natalie Costa. Tried and tested in schools, these books are an invaluable resource for anyone working with children aged 6+.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Beth and Natalie for my Library Girl And Book Boy podcast. We chatted about the books, budgets and self-belief. You can also hear what a primary school head teacher thought of the series. Find the episode by clicking HERE.
