Why should schools use this service?
Group interventions are cost effective and timely. Many young people who are struggling with an issue that prevents them from learning do not want to see a therapist for one to one support and do not meet the threshold for CAMHS interventions. Students report feeling empowered, better able to cope and the peer to peer support reduces bullying, unites students and begins conversations about good habits for mental wellbeing that continue after the programme finishes. The techniques we teach can be used throughout life and in communities that often do not seek support for themselves.
