Supporting mental health and wellbeing during unprecedented school closures

We understand that these are particularly challenging times for everyone, and particularly schools.

The mental health and wellbeing of your staff, students and parents will be critical during this current climate, and at a time where social distancing will create a barrier to the typical support and guidance schools will provide to their students.

YMCA Trinity Group is one of the region’s leading mental health and wellbeing support charities, and we aim to be there for every person in the community; supporting young people, schools and their families through difficult times with a wide range of programmes and services.

We are here to help you and your school community during this difficult time. As well as our counselling support, advice and training, we wanted to draw your attention to a digital tool that may be of particular benefit at this time.


Thrive App


This is a 24/7 self-help tool for your students (11+), staff and parents to prevent, detect and support mental health & well-being.

Thrive is the only NHS approved app for the prevention, detection and self-management of common mental health conditions.


It promotes:


  • resilience
  • detects conditions before they become too severe
  • improves recovery rates
  • signposts for further support
  • provides in-app treatment
  • reports usage data to settings and much more



YMCA Trinity Group has partnered with Thrive Therapeutic Software to offer schools a proven and cost-effective solution to support the mental health and wellbeing of their staff, students and parents.

Through the YMCA Trinity Group charitable partnership, schools can access either the student or staff/parent app at a significant discount starting at just £2 per user per year.

We have also managed to secure a special 30% discount for schools purchasing apps for their whole student population (aged 11+).
