Young Beginnings

Young Beginnings

Young Beginnings is an exciting  project that sees North Kent Mind working with  local Secondary schools . We will take a roadshow out to schools to deliver mental health awareness to assemblies and classrooms. The presentations will include an awareness of what Mental Health/Ill Health means and how to recognise it; factors especially affecting young people; the impact of stigma; and looking at building resilience. 

Within some of the schools we will create psycho-educational groups which will provide a place where students can come together, express themselves and talk about problems in a safe, comfortable environment. They are highly participative and activity based and teach young people coping strategies to help them manage their symptoms and conditions.

We will also provide individual support where needed and signpost young people to appropriate sources of help.

Download our Young Beginnings Resources Sheet – Young People for useful links to support young people and parents, and for teachers we also have a Young Beginnings Resources Sheet – Teachers.
