The Mental Health Line service is for people aged 18 and over (including people over 65).  People who are feeling anxious, depressed or have other worries about their mental health can call the line between 09.00 and 16.00 Monday to Friday. An experienced worker will take their details and make an appointment for them to speak to a specialist mental health practitioner, who will ring them back at a mutually convenient time within the following 36 hours. The practitioner will assess the person over the phone, and provide help and support and sometimes a referral on to other services.

Primary 1 – Tuesday 21st April

This is a weekly health and well being task.

I am aware of and able to express my feelings and am developing the ability to talk about them. HWB 0-01a 


Everyone feels different feelings at different times. It is really important that you can name your feelings so that other people understand how you are feeling. 


Click on the link and listen to this song. 




Take an A4 piece of paper and split it into four equal parts.


Draw one picture in each quarter; 


  1. A time when you are Happy.
  2. A time when you are Sad. 
  3. A time when you are Excited.
  4. A time when you are Mad.


Label your picture…


  1. I am happy when …
  2. I am sad when …
  3. I am excited when …
  4. I am mad when …


Today I have mixed feelings. I am sad that I cannot see you at school. I am excited for you to be learning with your families. I am happy that you are safe at home. I am mad that I don’t know when I’ll be able to come back to school.


Throughout this week can you name your feelings as they happen? Your family could do the same. Maybe you could make a list of all the different feelings you feel.
