‘How to Manage Stress and Worry’ programme outline

‘How to Manage Stress and Worry’ programme

The process of DISCOVER

The DISCOVER ‘How to Manage Stress and Worry programme is designed for up to 16 young people within a school sixth form. We take care to schedule each of the programme stages in partnership with schools to fit school timetables and to maximise participation.

The DISCOVER programme is usually set to run within the autumn or spring school terms. A programme outcomes report is then prepared and delivered to each participating school.  


What happens at DISCOVER workshops

The team use a range of multi-media methods to deliver the workshop material and engage students at our sessions. This includes psychologist-led presentations, video material, group discussions, experiential exercises, and goal setting, to build skills in the strategies and techniques covered and to improve students’ wellbeing outcomes.

Each student gets a DISCOVER Workbook to use within the workshop and to keep. At the end of the workshop day, students are supported to set personal goals, and are given access to the specially designed DISCOVER bot app. This web-based app holds a record of their goal and has a reminder of all the workshop techniques. We review students’ progress by phone after the workshop, and in an individual session three months later.

Please note that if students have additional emotional or mental health needs that require further intervention, we assist them to access specialist mental health or emotional support. Should any concerns be identified around risks or safeguarding, standard school procedures are followed in partnership with the school, and with relevant parties informed.
