Mental Health is something which affects nearly everyone, but the lack of education on it in secondary school is worrying.
This workshop provides advice, information and covers real case studies to improve the understanding of mental health so young people can speak more freely about the subject and seek help more easily.
1 in 10 children and young people aged between 5 and 16 suffer from a diagnosable mental health disorder. That’s 850,000 children and young people across the UK.
About 290,000 young people have an anxiety disorder and around 80,000 children and young people are seriously depressed.
Through our educational workshops, we aim to reduce these numbers and educate around 10,000 young people across the UK on the different types of mental health conditions including depression, anxiety and eating disorders; ways to reduce exam stress; confidentiality; healthy lifestyles and the importance of friendships.
Put together not just by health professionals including mental health nurses, GPs and general health advisors but students from schools across the UK. This workshop has truly been shaped by everyone.
