Who we are

As a part of ERA’s commitment to helping licence holders make the best use of material available to them, we have decided to start highlighting our ‘top pick’ each week. We’re hoping to reveal multiple educational uses for a single episode, series, or film with enough time to act as a ‘heads up’ for teachers to be able to record or access the material.

This Tuesday Channel5 will be airing a new documentary focusing on mental health. Me and My Mental Illness (10pm, Channel5) will provide a frank discussion about living with psychological issues. The programme will interview a range of people from all walks of life, including a number of famous faces, to demonstrate that anyone can be affected.

Extracts from the programme may be of great use to PSHE sessions looking to end the stigma of discussing mental health and could help start a dialogue for a class.

Follow the hashtag #TVforTeachers or @EraResources for more lesson ideas.

You can also access curated clips through our new learning platform .To use the platform, you just need to email your request to era@era.org.uk and we will set-up a login so that you can access the site freely.
