Mindapples has been promoting public mental health and wellbeing across the UK since 2008. Over the years they have received lots of similar feedback from adults “if only I was taught this at school”. The vision at Mindapples is of a world where taking care of our minds is natural and normal for everyone – and this should start with children and young people.
Since mental wellbeing and resilience became a statutory part of the curriculum, Mindapples want to help schools deliver on this promise to young people. Working with schools across the UK, they have developed a package of training and classroom resources to support teachers in delivering the new curriculum and developing an approach to mental wellbeing that can benefit the whole school community of staff, pupils and parents. The training equips school staff with the awareness and understanding they need to take care of their own minds, and the tools to help them facilitate positive conversations about mental health and wellbeing with pupils, school communities and families, to build cultures which promote healthy habits and open conversations. For more information about the training please look at the flyer.
Mindapples recently took part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge and reached their fundraising target so can now provide their schools programme to another 100 schools in the UK for FREE. We are now looking for schools to receive our training so if you would like to nominate your school please complete the form here.
