Active in Mind is a student-led intervention, designed to make use of physical activity as a proactive solution to mental health and wellbeing issues present within schools. The project will include a minimum of 15 young people (Nurture group) who will take part in a '6 week' intervention, planned and delivered by 5 Young Mental Health Champions. Schools involved in the programme will be required to have a lead member of staff to give pastoral support to all students involved and support the young mental health champions with their delivery. Outcomes of the programme include; increased student awareness of mental health issues, improved physical activity levels and a developed skill-set to improving coping strategies associated with mental wellbeing.
