As we start to move through the biggest health crisis the World has seen for generations, and start to build a new ‘normal’, we will see a new wave of mental health issues, especially within our education sector. Children will have become comfortable staying home with the safety of their parents, others will have suffered whilst staying home, for many different reasons, isolation, missing friends, or worse.The health of those Young minds affected by the pandemic will be enormous, putting extra strain on teachers, parents & carers.
As adults we have all been impacted in many different ways. And the way we think has a direct influence on our behaviours. It is important at this time that we put our own wellbeing at the forefront to ensure we are best placed to support others. And this is where our project is different. We are here to support you too.
Our mission at #ProjectRainbow is to coach as many People as we can to support those Young minds as they learn to cope with life again, and do so from a position of personal strength.
We aim to run our Mental Health Awareness course through Education settings, to give teachers, parents and caregivers the skills to support each and every child. So if you’re a school, college, nursery or childminder please get in touch to arrange your course.
Parents, please let your child’s education setting know if you would like them to access the course for you to be involved too.
