We support young people aged 15 – 18 with severe mental health conditions to better self-manage their conditions and prepare for, enter and sustain paid employment. We also work in primary and secondary schools delivering mindfulness-based activities to pupils to help them to develop strategies to cope with future stressful life events.
If we won funding it would enable us to reach far more schools with our Relax Kids programme. We already have a waiting list and just one part-time tutor to cover the entire area. Funding would help us to recruit more tutors and improve the wellbeing of more young people.
