During the week of June 10th:

  • Save time to talk to your class about anxiety
  • Use the toolkit to facilitate class discussion and activity
  • Encourage students to wear blue and orange to show support
  • Send us stories or photos from the day

Action Anxiety Day (AAD) is dedicated to anxiety awareness and education, as well as reducing the stigma around anxiety disorders.

As educators, you have a unique opportunity to create a safe and supportive space for students, especially when it comes to their mental health.

Anxiety is common for many children, and we can empower them with knowledge and the tools they need to cope.

We understand that as educators, your schedules are jam-packed, so we’ve created an easy-to-use toolkit to educate elementary students. Our goal is to make learning about anxiety as easy and accessible as possible! 

Together, we can create a positive and supportive learning environment that benefits young students. Our Action Anxiety Day toolkit includes:

  • An Action Anxiety Day poster and a PDF of our kid-friendly proclamation to print out
  • A lesson plan for both grades K-3 and 4-7 and additional worksheets to customize your plans
  • Optional: Share your experiences with the toolkit and tag us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn!
