Here you will find everything you need to deliver MiLife Blue sessions within your school setting. Sessions are designed for use by Year 9 students but with small adaptations by teaching staff will suitable for any secondary age young people.
How does it work?
MiLife Blue includes ten sessions that are designed to be used in a classroom setting or through home learning platforms. Sessions can last from 30-60 minutes depending on how much of the material is covered and/or whether the ‘Do Next’ activity happens during the lesson or as homework.
There are six sessions in the Discover section which cover an overview of emotional wellbeing issues commonly associated with traumatic experiences or global incidents like COVID19 and how young people can effectively respond to them in order to achieve positive mental health outcomes.
There are additionally four Explore sessions included that are more focussed on practical activities that young people could engage in to benefit their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Explore sessions might be set as homework/home learning activities or completed within education settings but may require additional resources or larger spaces than usually available in a standard classroom. They can work well when deployed in between the third and fourth Discover sessions.
