Peer Education Project

This project trains young people in year 11 or 12 to run mental health and wellbeing workshops with younger pupils.  

The project:

  • introduces mental health as something that we all have, like physical health.
  • encourages students to think about ways to stay well, how to seek help and support friends.
  • introduces common myths around mental health, and the stigma and discrimination people experience as a result.

You can find out if your school or college offers the Peer Education Project by contacting your pastoral care team.
