  • Be ahead of the curve by taking a preventative approach to mental health

Psychological Fitness

Psychological fitness combines mental resilience and emotional wellbeing, key attributes needed for success in the 21st century.

What schools say

“Thank you so much for providing us with these amazing modules on mental resilience. Our school supports high functioning autistic young people where anxiety and resilience are a challenge, and even more challenging at the moment with everything that’s currently going on in the world. All of the students have engaged really well with the lessons and made improvements in being able to fight against unhelpful ‘gremlin’ thoughts. The stories about Bea and Ben are great for putting the learning into a context to promote generalisation of the skills – something that people with autism can find a challenge. Thank you, it’s been such a success.” 

The Holmewood School, London

What pupils say

“I didn’t realise that other people think the same as I do.”
