Active in Mind

Active in Mind -is a Mental Health intervention in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust aimed at secondary aged children.

An athlete mentor will train a selected group of student mentors (5-10 students Year 9s or 10s) to be able to support a nurture group of 15-20 selected learners (Year 7s or 8s) who have low level anxiety/school stress. The athlete mentor will train the mentor group in a range of mental health support techniques which will enable them to run a 6 week activity based programme to manage school more positively. The athlete mentor will then return for a half-day follow-up celebration with all of the learners involved.
