Step Up: Schools & Colleges

Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, Step Up: Schools & Colleges is a co-production project which aims to build on young people’s strengths and abilities to deal with issues that could cause a mental health crisis.

Created and delivered with young people, our FREE workshops and resources for those living in London help 15 to 19s avoid being affected by mental illness, and provide a form of support for those who are experiencing mental illness and need to explore ways of managing symptoms. 

We are also able to offer training to professionals working with young people, to equip them with the skills, knowledge and activities to facilitate their own workshops.

Find out more below.


Our 1 or 2 hour workshops cover:

• Mental health awareness
• Issues affecting young people
• Supporting discussions and activities
• CBT techniques
• Where young people can get help

Either delivered online or in person, our workshops for young people living in London are delivered alongside a Young Champion to provide an open forum for learning and discussion.

Attendees will receive a handbook that includes CBT techniques, tips from our Young Experts and where they can find support for their mental health.
