An innovative school-based workshop programme approach for 16 – 18s who experience anxiety, low mood and stress.
DISCOVER is a new, evidence-based mental health programme, that is run in schools, to help students who are highly stressed, and to build their resilience and confidence. Designed in consultation with young people, DISCOVER is an award-winning, non-stigmatising approach for a wide range of student emotional and stress-related problems. DISCOVER has been delivered to over 500 teenagers to date. The programme provides psychological advice and techniques for young people in an interactive and confidential workshop format.
DISCOVER is delivered by clinical psychologists from South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust (SLaM) in partnership with school staff. The DISCOVER team also provides staff training and consultation in adolescent mental health and wellbeing.
What’s coming soon?
The DISCOVER team are extending DISCOVER to meet the needs of stressed Year 11 students. We will be piloting this in several South London schools.
