Healthy Minds Research Project

Find out more about the research project Healthy Minds. Funded by the Education Endowment Foundation and trialled in 34 schools over 5 years.


“The extensive training results in very well trained, confident and engaged staff who have experienced first hand and fully understand the opportunities presented by the different activities and lessons. Students have had a very positive experience and value the lessons greatly. We now have a clear structure to our PSHE programme, but the emphasis on developing life skills through exploring experiences and scenarios, has contributed to our work in developing resilient, robust and well-balanced individuals ready to make a positive contribution to the school and society.”
