Since our launch in 2020, in England we have reached 1,841 young people through the programme and helped them increase their knowledge and tools to build resilience.

We have trained over 197 professionals and co-delivered remotely and in-person. By training professionals we incubate a culture of open conversations about mental health which leads to a more supportive environment.

“This was a great opportunity to talk openly amongst a group, as it provided a safe space for us all to share our thought and personal experiences. We learned a lot of great strategies; these have all been put to great use amongst our team."

"Through these sessions I learned to be able to ask for help when I need to and that it is not the end of the world when I am struggling. I have learned to not give up if I get stuck.“

"As a young footballer injury and selection are two of the most common reported stressors so having specific training in this area is helping players develop the skills to manage it and use it positively to aid their development."

Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services

“I have been diagnosed with anxiety and OCD. I have intrusive thoughts about death. When discharged [from CAMHS] I become increasingly worse and was referred to these sessions which I have enjoyed. I take notes throughout each one and remember what has been taught. I am currently attempting to journal and write down thoughts as they happen.”
