Donate today and help Mindapples give mental wellbeing and resilience training to 100 schools!
Mindapples are thrilled to be part of The Big Give Christmas Challenge, a digital match funding campaign which runs from midday 30th November (Giving Tuesday) to midday 7th December 2021. We aim to raise £20,000 to provide wellbeing support to 100 schools all around the UK, and we need your help.
Mental wellbeing and resilience became a statutory part of the curriculum for primary and secondary schools in September 2021, and we want to help schools deliver on this promise to young people. Mindapples has developed a package of training and classroom resources to support teachers in delivering the new curriculum, and an approach to mental wellbeing that can benefit the whole school community of staff, pupils and parents.
Our training and support packs equip school staff with the awareness and understanding they need to take care of their own minds, and the tools to help them start positive conversations about mental health and wellbeing with pupils, colleagues and families, to build cultures which promote healthy habits and open conversations.
We love hearing from schools about the impact our training has had:
“We are so proud to have been a part of the Mindapples wellbeing pilot. Our children have hugely benefited from a strategic approach to supporting their mental health and well-being upon our full return to school” Heber Primary School, Southwark
“The Mindapples training surpassed all expectations I had for a thought provoking, interesting and informative training course…. we are working with our students on their emotional wellbeing on a daily basis and this has increased awareness and given us heaps of tips, information and practical advice on how we can support them” Atlantic College, Llantwit Major
As part of the Big Give package, we’ll also be providing schools with wellbeing campaign packs, lesson plans and assembly resources to help them promote mental health and wellbeing to the whole school community – including pupils, staff and parents.
“We really loved the apples, it’s just a lovely visual way for the children to think about those things which are positive for them and as it’s such lovely quality card it makes it feel really special” St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School, Bath
Our vision is of a world where taking care of our minds is natural and normal for everyone – and this starts with children and young people. We all each have an amazing opportunity to improve our lives, simply by taking better care of our minds. Let’s give young people the tools to do just that.
