This is a set of activities to improve emotional resilience and support the mental health of young people between 11 and 24. This programme is intended to be preventative. It is not intended as a treatment for any mental health condition, although people who are managing a mental health condition may, like anyone else, benefit from learning about ways to support their wellbeing.
The content of the programme was devised after a review of research into psychological and mental health resilience and was informed by a series of consultation events with young people.
The activities were devised in a series of workshops with 18 young people and 7 youth practitioners from Lambeth in South London who co-produced the learning resources. The ethnicity of this group was diverse but mainly Black British young people from African, Afro-Caribbean or Dual Heritage backgrounds.
