HeadsUp! A Toolkit Of Sessions To Run With Young People To Promote Mental Health
Heads Up! A toolkit of sessions to run with young people to promote mental health & emotional well-being.
This resource is provided by YouthUK and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. It supports emotional well-being at the heart of all work with young people.
The sessions in this toolkit aim to:
• Build resilience in young people so that they are better equipped to deal with the challenges that come their way
• Raise awareness of mental health, the stigma that surrounds it and how best to respond
• Address particular issues which may affect young people’s emotional well-being
• Encourage young people to reach out for support if they need it.
