Outcomes

Increased confidence in discussing mental health and wellbeing

By breaking down complex topics in easy to understand ways, we empower young people gain a greater understanding of, and advocate for, their own mental health and wellbeing.

โ€‹

Recognise stressors such as anxiety, overwhelm, burnout and isolation

Our sessions are designed to gently promote greater physical and emotional self-awareness in young people, so that they are more easily able to recognise and address common stressors.

โ€‹

Feeling less isolated

By interacting with, and being led by, other neurodivergent individuals, young people are given the opportunity to be around others who think like them and share common challenges and experiences.

The sessions are pitched just right. It was lovely to see him understanding more about his strengths.

Our Approach

๐Ÿ™ƒ Designed for different learning styles

Learning comes naturally when young people feel at home. That's why we've designed our sessions to be relaxed and welcoming. Whether young people need to stretch, move around, or even fidget, they’re free to do what they need to engage best.

โ€‹

๐ŸŒˆ Neurodivergent led

Each session is run by two neurodivergent facilitators. They lead by example, sharing their own experiences of growing up neurodivergent. We create an environment where being neurodivergent isn't just understood – it's celebrated.

โ€‹

๐Ÿ˜ป Engaging curriculum

Our sessions are packed with valuable insights about being neurodivergent. We break down complex concepts into simple easy to understand ideas and use visual guides, making learning interactive and fun.

๐Ÿ‘พ Choose your own interaction

How young people participate is entirely up to them. Keep cameras on or off, share thoughts verbally or in writing, or just sit back and watching. We even offer an anonymous contribution option for those who prefer it.

โ€‹

๐Ÿฅฝ Safety first

All of our team members are trained in safeguarding and have their Enhanced DBS Checks done. At the start of our session, we ask for an adult to pop onto the camera for a quick hello - this helps us know an adult is nearby. But don't worry, for our young participants, there's no camera pressure. They can choose to be on or off camera - whatever makes them feel at ease!

๐Ÿ‘ฌ Parents, Join us!

While participation isn't mandatory for parents, we love it when parents join in. Feel free to join us and observe, or even interact alongside your young people.
