Our mental wellbeing education programme for Public Health England (PHE) uses a peer-to-peer learning approach, covering topical risks such as cyberbullying, alcohol, body image and exam stress. The programme drives social impact by encouraging conversations about difficult issues, building resilience, enabling young people to say no, and adjusting perceptions of how many people are engaging in risky behaviours to reduce the power of social norming. The programme is accredited by the PSHE Association.
We promoted the programme to teachers through a multi-channel campaign including Facebook advertising, email and trade and national media.
“I liked the lesson because it showed how you can make your own choices in a real-life situation and do what you think is right.”

The programme gives students the opportunity to talk about issues affecting them, helping them to build resilience, talk to their families and change their lives.
