Resilient Young Minds – A revolutionary approach to wellbeing – #NoOneisBroken

How can we best support our young people? In an age where the statistics point to a mental health crisis, we believe there might be a powerful simple answer to support children.

Our conference on November 22nd and 23rd shares a message of hope – that no-one is broken.

This conference will show that young people:

  • Are not broken
  • Do not need to be ‘fixed’
  • Have resilience, resourcefulness and wellbeing inbuilt

This conference will be perfect to you if you would you like to:

  • Make a difference in the lives of young people.
  • Learn about a simple, effective psychological understanding that is starting to gain traction in the world of psychology and psychiatry.
  • Support young people to see their own in-built resilience

This is a one and half day conference. Here are the speakers (please note Jamie Smart and Dr Rani Bora are speaking on day 2)

Beyond the Labels:

When parents and teachers look beyond the label to the whole child, then a different world opens up.

Here’s a 60 second video summarising his talk.
