Working With Schools
Support to develop positive mental health, resilience and wellbeing in your school
We provide evidence based interventions and training that develop positive mental health in children and young people.
The pressures and demands being faced by children and young people, coupled with a lack of resources and poor coping strategies, is having a detrimental effect on their ability to flourish. Children and young people are suffering with poor mental health; there is an increase in depression and anxiety along with self-harm and panic attacks. With over half of all mental health problems starting before the age of 14, there is an urgent need to provide support to children and young people at an earlier stage.
We have developed effective solutions to tackling this problem. Our service is delivered in three ways;
- We develop and provide early intervention programmes for partner organisations.
- We work with schools to develop whole school wellbeing and positive mental health.
- We train professionals and practitioners to use strategies that develop positive mental health, resilience and wellbeing in children and young people.
Based on extensive experience working with children and young people, we have developed and deliver effective early intervention programmes to address the mental health needs of children and young people at an early stage. Our support involves developing the sustainable skills and resources of resilience, improving levels of wellbeing and promoting positive mental health. We deliver this support indirectly through developing intervention programmes or packages with our partner organisations. Our collaborative and responsive ethos has enabled us to explore, understand and respond to the needs of health and local authority commissioners, developing pioneering large-scale early intervention programmes nationally.
Working with Schools
Based on experience and know-how of working with over 150 schools, we have created our whole school offer. We work with schools to embed sustainable, evidence-based approaches to developing resilience and positive mental health, benefiting pupils, staff and the whole school community.
In response to a growing concern around children and young people’s mental health problems from those working within the children’s workforce, we have developed several training courses. Our courses are for people who work with children and adolescents including; teachers, pastoral staff, youth workers and support workers. Practitioners tell us they want to know they are effectively supporting children and young people. We have trained over two thousand teachers and practitioners with skills, strategies and resources effective in developing resilience, positive mental health and wellbeing in children and adolescents.
Having positively impacted over 40,000 children and young people, we are experts in enabling them to: become more resilient, learn better coping strategies, develop self-worth and improve mental health.
Our approach to developing positive mental health creates the following positive outcomes:
- Reduces symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety.
- Develops self-help skills which improve mental wellbeing.
- Prevents escalation of emotional issues.
- Improves communication, interpersonal skills and relationships.
- Supports engagement in, and attitude to, learning.
- Increase confidence and develops self-awareness.
- Reduces workload pressures in schools.
- Decreases absences and improves attendance.
- Reduces the use of negative coping strategies such as self-harm.
We work with commissioners, professionals, groups, schools and partner organisations to create real change and develop positive outcomes through improving wellbeing, developing positive mental health and resilience.
