Through our prevention programmes, practitioners learn, explore and practice practical strategies, skills and resources that prevent the development of mental health problems in children and young people.

We ensure that all of our prevention programmes are designed and tailored in line with the specific needs and priorities of the organisation by working in partnership with commissioners and key stakeholders. This means that all of our prevention programmes to be integrated with new or established prevention and early intervention programmes that may already be in place. Alongside this, the tailored nature of our prevention programmes means that there is no pre-required level of learning or experience, and so our programmes can be made suitable for new or established practitioners.

During the process, we provide consultancy and programme development, which alongside our experience and practical know-how allows us to develop engaging and effective prevention programmes for children and young people.

Underpinning Evidence

Working collaboratively with children and young people has enabled us to build a clear understanding of the difficulties they face and are contributing to poor mental health and symptoms of mental illness. This knowledge has enabled us to ensure that our interventions are accessible and available in schools, community and places they go or with people they work with.

We know children and young people need strategies that work and that enable them to help themselves improve wellbeing. All our prevention programmes are designed to do exactly that.

Our prevention programmes help young people develop a positive outlook, self-efficacy, build positive relationships and make positive choices. Our approach has been proven to increase young people’s choice and control of thoughts, feelings and behaviours (Robson-Kelly & van Nieuwerburgh, 2016), equipping them with strategies and skills associated with many positive outcomes that help to reduce vulnerability (Windle, 2010). Approaches developed in our approach are broken into 3 broad categories;

  • Skills to develop positive relationships with peers, adults and the community.
  • Skills to understand themselves, their feelings and how to develop positive self-awareness.
  • Understanding of thinking, such as positive attitudes, responsibility, motivation and positive aspiration.
