From September 2020, the new relationships and health curriculum (DfE, 2019) places the onus firmly on schools to promote wellbeing and mental health, and support pupils experiencing difficulties. Interventions that help increase children’s emotional literacy and promote wellbeing are a crucial component of school-based mental health strategies. 'Book of Beasties' is a socio-emotional intervention, delivered by trained school staff to small groups of children. This blog article introduces the innovative 'Book of Beasties - mental wellness card game' and describes a pilot study undertaken for exploratory research and to inform the design of a full evaluation.
