Brentwood Mind provides the opportunity to work with schools and education facilities. This could be for awareness talks such as:
- Coping with exam stress
- What is mental health?
- How to support yourself and others through tough times,
This we can do from the ages 12 and up in large groups as presentations and activities.
Alternately for older students 14+ the ability to create an open door policy where those who are struggling have the opportunity to seek advice or support in a comfortable environment with individuals who aren’t directly associated (e.g. parents and teachers) sometimes having no personal ties to the situation can enable a young adult to open up and talk through their issues without feeling judged or coerced into something they are uncomfortable with.
