In collaboration with mental health charity Mind UK, 'I am Blue because...' is an educational programme designed to fill the void of mental health education and awareness in school curriculums.
Designed for ages 5-7, the following book is a workshop guide that familiarises young minds with the more than complex world of thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a simpler, more manageable way. Enabling children to use their creativity to verbally or visually articulate how they feel internally while minimising stigma around having such conversations.
Included is a collection of individual and class orientated activities, photocopiable handouts and guidelines for conducting the workshops. Additionally, advice is also given on how to approach and stimulate conversations around the topic.
