Positive Minds; Online Programme Launches
Positive Minds has moved online!
Over the past couple of months we have been busy creating Positive Minds; Online - a 5 week course for Year 6 classes delivered through an online platform. We have started delivery to 11 schools across Hertfordshire, with another 10 schools signed up who we will begin delivering to in the very near future (please see below for the full list of schools currently signed up). We have already received some great feedback, with one student from St Cuthbert Mayne saying:
"I learnt that having mental health issues doesn’t stop you achieving your dreams because some celebrity’s have it. I also know that 50% of your mental health issues are established before you are 14. I also learnt a lot more – thank you for letting us use this site!”
The programme is open to all schools in Hertfordshire and is Free!
