We're living in the moment but planning for the future.
School Assembly Programme (launched 2017)
A presentation delivered by teenager Jade Sutton to young people in primary and secondary schools. The purpose being to destigmatise mental health issues amongst young people and spread a message of hope through her personal recovery story. 74 schools visited and 35,000 (approx.) young people reached as of Nov 2020.
Foundation Course (launched Oct 2020)
A foundation course for parents of young people who self-harm which will be free to access for all parents.
Online Parent Support Group (launched Nov 2020)
Live teaching and support for parents that have completed the online Foundation Course using Zoom.
Young People’s Mental Health Ambassadors (launched Nov 2020)
Presentations in secondary/high schools in Devon, UK, to spread awareness of and destigmatise youth mental health. A grant funded project delivered in collaboration with Action to Prevent Suicide CIC with potential to spread via collaboration into Europe, Africa and Caribbean.
Adaption of The Horizon Plan online course for black parents (seeking funding)
Some of the highest rates of self-harm in the UK have been seen in Black and minority ethnic (BME) groups in the United Kingdom (Baldwin & Griffiths, 2009; Bhugra, Desai, & Baldwin, 1999).
An individual’s ethnic background plays a key role in understanding how to support poor mental health sufferers in the BAME community. A study into self-harm and ethnicity by the University of Birmingham expressed that due to the diversity of factors that lead people to self-harm, ‘ethnic background must be taken into consideration when treating individuals’. As such, we plan to collaborate with mental healthcare professionals from within and with experience of serving the black community to update our Foundation Course. Click Here to read more.
Full Course (planned April 2021)
The release of our full course (encompassing all 5 modules) guiding parents of young people who self-harm to support their child’s recovery. The course will be free to access for parents in the UK and available for a small fee for parents in other countries.
Adapt materials to support other mental health challenges (TBC)
The methodology has been developed to specifically support parents of young people who self-harm, and will be adapted to support parents of young people with other mental health challenges e.g. anxiety, depression.
Know Your Purpose Camps
Two-day workshops guiding young people through the fifth stage of our methodology (The Growing Stage). The camps will develop a positive sense of identity and self-esteem, clarity of passion and purpose, and support to develop a plan to make our work a better place.
Train the Trainer Qualification (TBC)
Training parents who have completed the online course to teach the methodology face-to-face.
City Hubs (TBC)
The establishment of local support groups led by qualified parent coaches.
Residential Retreat (TBC)
A farm in Devon, UK, where young people struggling with self-harm (and other related mental health challenges) and their parents, can stay for a short period and be immersed in a healing and supportive environment. There will be a variety of activities and programmes for both young people and their parents including connecting with nature, spending time in the outdoor environment, music, art, story-telling, working with or riding a horse, woodworking, leatherworking, arts and crafts, games, gardening, acts of service and helping others through volunteerism. A vision being pursued in collaboration with Goodwill in Action to Prevent Suicide CIO and Action To Prevent Suicide CIC.
