They believe in prevention and deliver a significant amount of work to build resilience in children and young people to prevent mental health conditions and support children and young people at risk of developing a mental health condition including:
- Work in secondary schools supporting young people to design and lead wellbeing activities in their schools to benefit their peers (The Wellbeing Challenge).
- Raise awareness of the five ways to wellbeing via their Community Development Team who attend assemblies and youth groups.
- Promote the value of peer support providing people with the tools, support and guidance to set up their own peer support groups
- Train and support for Schools to educate staff and embed wellbeing with the school community.
Specifically, in Pendle the Wellbeing Challenge project has so far been delivered into three secondary schools to co-produce wellbeing activities. The Wellbeing Challenge empowers young people to lead change to improve wellbeing for their school peers whilst directly benefitting the young people themselves by improving their awareness of mental wellbeing and developing new life skills through designing and delivering their own projects.
