SAFEMinds uses an immersive, video-based experience, to tell a series of personal stories of children and young people, their families and teachers.
Through interaction with these stories, the learner is asked to make decisions to support the child or young person; either in their capacity as a school staff member or as their parent or carer. This approach aims to develop the knowledge and understanding of the whole school community, about the many different forms of emotional distress children and young people may experience, and how these might be presented. A toolkit of resources, supporting websites and further background information can also be found in SAFEMinds Online..
*These videos are based upon broad clinical experience but do not depict the stories of actual people.
