Mental Health Training, Resilience and Wellbeing Services
We deliver early intervention and prevent the development of mental health problems, through improving the wellbeing and resilience of children, young people and schools.
We provide innovative, evidence based solutions to preventing mental health problems developing 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 earlier.
Though our extensive work with children and young people, we have created and deliver effective evidence based solutions to addressing the mental health needs of children and young people earlier. Our support involves developing the sustainable skills and resources of resilience and improving levels of wellbeing.
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. Practitioners tell us they want to know they are effectively supporting the children and young people they work with to prevent mental health problems developing. We have trained over two thousand teachers and practitioners with skills and resources essential to developing resilience and improve wellbeing in children and adolescents.
Our collaborative, and responsive ethos has enabled us to explore, understand and respond to the needs of schools. We support and work with schools to embed sustainable, evidence based approaches to developing resilience and mental health that benefit pupils, staff and the whole school community.
