Mental Health Workshops for Schools
Social Media: Stay Safe Online
No5 delivers Mental Health Workshops in schools and colleges in Reading, with the aim to educate, support and build self-awareness in young people around issues they face today.
There are 7 workshops in the series, based on current issues relevant to young people.
Workshops are developed in collaboration with our Young Ambassadors, aged 16-25, and our counsellors at No5. They are currently being delivered by No5’s Projects Coordinator, Abbie, and No5’s Outreach and Wellbeing Support Counsellor, Nathanya, both who have lived experience of No5’s service.
Workshop 2 – Social Media: Stay Safe Online
Support young people to enjoy social media in healthy and productive ways, by identifying online pressures, risks and ways to keep safe.
There are lots of benefits of social media and living in the digital age. But how do young people protect themselves whilst spending time online? Focussing on cyberbullying, sexting, grooming and what we share online, we explore how to protect ourselves and what to do if things go wrong.

Your students will:
- Benefit from peer-led education and resources
- Understand the risks faced by young people on social media platforms
- Gain insight into the pressures of social media and how to navigate them
- Know what the law says about sexting and grooming
- Learn ways to look after themselves online
