Worth-it is dedicated to preventing mental health problems through promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in children and young people.
We know this is a big aim and what started out as direct work with children and young people has now grown into us specialising in a range of services, that enable us to support sustainable approaches to the promotion of positive mental health and wellbeing through applied practice.
Worth-it was founded to apply evidence-based approaches of positive psychology and coaching psychology. Our aim is to create real change and prevent mental health problems for children and young people. This developed into our innovative approach to early prevention, through improving wellbeing, building strategies for resilience and developing positive mental health.
Worth-it Positive Education CIC was established in 2018 to develop and deliver prevention programmes working directly with young people and indirectly by training professionals that work with children and young people.
Through collaboration positive psychology and coaching psychology approaches with young people and listening to their challenges, we created and delivered engaging interventions that met their needs and resulted in many positive outcomes that contribute to the prevention of mental health problems.
Worth-it has successfully worked with over 250 schools, over 5000 children and young people through its early prevention programmes and intervention packages of support. We have trained over 2500 teachers, school leaders and practitioners that support children and young people.
The development of Worth-it’s unique approach, led to us providing training and development opportunities for schools and the children and young people’s workforce. We created a range of training and support options for practitioners to develop skills to support children and young people in our approach to early prevention.
To maximise our social impact, we developed our primary offer to work in partnership and support commissioners, schools, organisations and practitioners to apply sustainable approaches to improving mental health and wellbeing in children and young people.
