New schools programme launched
We are delighted to announce the launch of our Speak Up! programme, developed in conjunction with Soroptimist International Taunton and Taunton Women’s Aid. The programme focuses on important issues such as healthy relationships, boundaries and self esteem.
These issues are crucial; one in ten children and young people are affected by mental health issues, and 70% of children and young people who experience a mental health problem have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
Speak Up! is part of our current work with schools, ensuring that we look after the young people in our county. The programme includes lesson plans, work with the Mind staff and pre and post programme assessments to ensure that the programe’s participants learn in a way that suits them.
