Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards

The child-friendly Resilience Passport, which helps to promote emotional wellbeing for children has won a national award at the Positive Practice National Children and Young Peoples Mental Health Awards in the Learning and Education category.  The Resilience Passport is a fun mental health promotion and training programme, designed for the primary school Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education curriculum.
