‘I can talk about anything without being judged. It’s a free space to let out all my emotions.’
A Whole School Approach to mental health and wellbeing
A Whole School Approach to mental health and wellbeing is a way of challenging stigma and increasing awareness across school communities, from young people and their parents and caregivers, to school staff. Typical services offered might be staff mental health training, anxiety management groups, parenting seminars, resilience workshops and assemblies on self-esteem and confidence.
How we support young people
We offer 1-2-1 support sessions to young people across all primary and secondary schools and alternative education provisions in Newport via our BOOST (Build yOur Own Self-help Tools) project.
Common difficulties we support young people with include:
- Body image
- Change and transitions
- Confidence and self-esteem
- Low mood
- Managing feelings and emotions
- School stress
- Self-harm and suicidal thoughts
Additionally, we offer group sessions for young people, as well as assemblies and workshops, including our popular resilience workshops.

How we support school staff
Typical services offered include staff mental health training and staff consultations.
Most services offered to school staff are universal, meaning that both teaching and non-teaching members of staff are encouraged to attend, however, some are targeted at staff with particular roles, or those who need particular support.
