WELLBEING SKILLS FOR LIFE,
FOR YOUR SCHOOL'S WHOLE COMMUNITY.
It is the greatest time in history to be a creative, ambitious young person. For those people, there are incredible opportunities to create a dream career and life.
Most importantly, there are some big challenges in the world that young people can and will solve with creativity, kindness and accountability.
For secondary schools, developing young people with strong mental wellbeing is top of the agenda.
At This Is Me Mentoring, we support schools to not only strengthen the wellbeing of their pupils, but develop empowered young people who will go on to realise their amazing potential.
THIS IS OUR
Our mission is to see all young people leave school with the strength, kindness and accountability that will not only see them thrive but also empower them to go on and make a difference in the world.
Our programmes embed a mentoring culture in the school community. They give staff and pupils the skills to build each other up as rounded humans, not just exam-passing whizzkids.
The message around mental health and wellbeing has been doom and gloom for too long.
It is time to think about things differently.
Our Mentoring Programmes step away from unhelpful mental health labels, by giving staff and pupils the confidence to have proactive conversations about how they are feeling. Mentoring addresses the unconscious bias we all hold about mental health and provides the opportunity to support without having to be a specialist.
Founder of This Is Me, delivering sustainable well-being mentoring and coaching for schools.
Dealing with well-being in school isn't a tick box exercise any more. A wellbeing week and a few mentions in PSHE won't cut it, schools need something scaleable, skills based and mindset altering.
Contrary to popular belief, well-being isn't wishy washy - it's skills based. I founded This Is Me to teach young people how to think about their own wellbeing, support their friends and peers with their's and take accountability for looking after it. In the years since those first training sessions, I have learnt that it is just as important for teachers to develop the same confidence managing their wellbeing.
So much of well-being in school is focused on 'what' the school is delivering. The special events. That isn't where the big shifts are found. The seismic shifts are made at the smallest level, changing mindsets and increasing the quality of communication.
This Is Me's mentoring and coaching programmes deliver skills and confidence at every level in the school community. If you are ready for a real shift in the wellbeing of your team and pupils, send me a message.
