2021/22 Resources

Thank you for signing up to take part in OutRight 2021/22!

The resources for the 2021/22 campaign are all about mental health and children’s rights.

Children and young people who take part in the campaign will: 

  • Learn about what mental health is, why it’s important and how it links to their rights
  • Find out how we can take care of our mental health, what services are available for children in the UK, and for children around the world
  • Discuss how the culture around speaking out on mental health is changing and tackle stigma associated with the topic
  • Campaign and speak up to local decision makers about what they need to have their mental health supported

Kick start the campaign by sharing this message from Cel Spellman with your group!

You can start learning and campaigning with OutRight at any time during the year! You’ll find everything you need to do so on this page.

If you have any issues viewing them or have questions about the campaign, please email  outright@unicef.org.uk .

Support Workshops

We held our first Support Workshop on 15 September 2021: we really enjoyed answering your questions and hearing your ideas. You can find the notes from the workshop here.

Our next workshop will be on 20 October 2021: sign up and secure your place now.

How can I use the resources?

Like last year, OutRight will be really interactive and we’ve suggested how things can be adapted for younger children, wherever we can. We’ve tried to design everything to be flexible enough for use in-person and over platforms like Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

We’ll be releasing a new set of resources every couple of weeks and holding some online workshops and webinars for you and the children you work with.

Please do sign up for the online events when we release the dates: we really want to hear from you, amplify your ideas and answer your questions!
