After the epidemic children will be suffering from Anxiety, separation anxiety, low self-esteem and anger to name a few. We plan to help as many children as we can in a cost-effective way.
Plan- A tried and tested session that we have delivered to approximately 40 schools and over 200 classes from reception to year 6. We will deliver an hour workshop to each class which teaches mindfulness techniques, these have been designed to be adaptable for all ages. We will teach techniques to help children deal with their negative emotions.
We would provide as many schools as possible with equipment, resources and training so teachers can continue the methods and techniques that help children to understand and self-regulate their emotions.
Funding- To achieve our aim we are looking for funding so that as many primary schools, SEN schools and children as possible can benefit from our techniques. We do meet a lot of funding requirements; mental health, SEN needs, mindfulness but are struggling to apply as we are not bid writers.
Testimonial from a primary school- Martyn from Motivated Minds recently delivered sessions for our Year 3 and Year 6 classes. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, their communication skills were improved. Martyn communicates with children in a way that absolutely captures their full attention. The health and wellness course, devised by Motivated Minds, is aimed at helping children understand their emotions, speak about their feelings and find their own coping methods. We all need to take responsibility for supporting children to have good mental health and Motivated Minds has developed a course that does this in an extremely effective but fun way! I cannot recommend Motivated Minds highly enough.
