Mental Health is something which affects nearly everyone, but the lack of education on it in secondary school is worrying. Introducing, WYO Educate - Mental Health Workshop...
Each topic includes a case studies film, pre-recorded advice from health care professional, self-help tips and where to seek support.
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Exam Stress
- Social Media
This workshop provides advice, information and covers real case studies to improve the understanding of mental health so young people can speak 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 and anxiety; ways to reduce exam stress; confidentiality; healthy lifestyles; the importance of friendships and social media health.
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.
Duration: 60 minutes Delivery Area: London, Essex and South East England
