Parents and carers are integral to promoting positive mental health in young people and supporting those in need. We can adapt all of our training in the competency framework to parents and carers, specifically the core and enhanced courses. Adaptations may be in the form of content, course length or structure so please get in touch to discuss your bespoke needs. Examples of tailored parent awareness workshops include:



In order to create a positive well-being culture, mental health needs to be everyone’s business. Student awareness is also central to building resilience and reducing the risk of issues escalating. In addition to parents and staff, students can therefore increase their own mental health competencies through a range of programmes we can offer that are listed below:




We can deliver a range of assemblies for all ages covering some basic mental health awareness activities, self-care tips, myths and facts, case studies, videos, supporting others, etc.




Free to all schools, we have two national campaigns which provide useful resources, session plans, reports and videos that are free to download.


  • IAMWHOLE – anti-stigma campaign backed by celebrities such as Ed Sheeran. Visit www.whole.org.uk
  • BeREAL – a body confidence campaign in partnership with Dove to raise awareness of body image issues. Visit www.berealcampaign.co.uk


Awareness workshops / Well-being Days


If you need support running awareness sessions in schools, we can help. Our trained practitioners can deliver one-off workshops or even run a whole school awareness day depending on your needs. We can also help you arrange your own awareness days to fundraise for mental health support. Please get in touch to receive our fundraising pack.




Not only can we offer you awareness sessions, we can also arrange workshops on specific topics such as exam stress, body confidence and anxiety.




Level 1 Award – Young Health Champions

To help schools develop peer support programmes, we have written an accredited qualification for students aged 14+. The award will help build leadership skills, but also raise awareness of mental health to enable students to support others and raise awareness across the school. The course consists of up to 50 hours of guided learning and can be delivered by our trainers or we can arrange for you to attend a Train The Trainer course so you can run it yourself.
