Educational films for mental wellbeing

From January to March 2022, the Mental Health Foundation will be presenting a series of webinars to introduce you to these short, captivating films - and how they can be used within refugee communities to support mental health. 

Webinar details will be posted here and on our social media channels once they are live. 

Video 1: Staying mentally well  

This video features the story of Mariam, who is a refugee, and shares 7 tips on what we can all do to help us stay mentally well.  



Video 2: Mindful communication 

This video shows a series of different scenarios that demonstrate how best to respond when people tell you they are feeling low, sad or depressed.  



Video 3: This is what hope looks like 

In this video, people from refugee communities share stories about what gave them hope when they first arrived in Scotland. This is part of our campaign to raise awareness about the challenges faced by refugee communities. 

We hope that these stories will help refugees and asylum seekers to feel a sense of optimism about the future – through hearing from people who have been in similar situations to their own.
