"Your brain is brilliant and your mind is magnificent"
We know being physically safe is only part of the picture.
Our children are suffering from struggles that didn’t exist 5 years ago. They are feeling overwhelmed due to the burdens of social media and constant pressures to be on trend. As adults we know how much pressure social media places on us 24/7. It is debilitating. That's why we started a project focusing on mental safety and wellbeing - "Mind Safe". We want our young people to know, and believe, their brains are brilliant, and their minds are magnificent! We focus on how our young people can become resilient and mentally prepared for life's challenges. Give them tools to become happier and more balanced adults. Louise Richardson - Absafe CEO.
Which is why we created “Mind Safe”.
Mind Safe is a project we developed to help young people gain a better understanding of mental wellbeing and emotional regulation.
We worked with the teachers and children from Banchory-Devenick primary to give them the skills to become the FIRST Mind Safe school in Scotland! Subsequently working with two other local schools, St Machar Academy and Portlethan Academy, to introduce Mind Safe to them.
