Active in Mind
DescriptionActive in Mind is funded by National Lottery funding from Sport England. It targets young people (Key Stage 2 and above) experiencing low level mental health issues who are part of a wellbeing support programme in their school (pastoral support or counselling) or in Tier 1 or 2 Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
The projects create a nurture group environment for young people most in need of support. The primary outcomes are to address inactivity and develop positive behaviours, provide a safe environment for young people to share personal insight and experiences with their peers and support mental health issues.
Each project is supported by a named and trained Wellbeing Champion (lead adult member of staff) and delivered through a small team of Young Mental Health Champions who receive advanced training on developing strategies to improve mental wellbeing and reduce stress and anxiety.
