What is The Teenage Toolkit?
Supporting teenage mental health is key to enable people to become resilient, emotionally aware and well-resourced adults.
Teenagers need and want to support themselves and their friends with their mental health. Their teachers, support staff, parents and carers need and want to support them too.
Teenagers and young people experience many changes as they grow older. Their brain physically develops, and this can impact their wellbeing.
That’s not to mention other challenges they need to navigate including friendships, relationships, school pressure, identity and their values and ethics.
The Teenage Toolkit is an interactive workshop to help teenagers become more resilient, emotionally aware and well-resourced adults.
We help young people better understand how their brain can react differently to situations based on previous experience, knowledge, and memories. Then, we empower them with practical skills to cope with challenges.
