Mind Mechanics workshops are designed to facilitate better understanding and self-regulation of emotions to reduce mental health problems and teach strategies to better manage or protect against existing poor mental health. Consisting of six high impact, one to two hour workshops, the programme is designed to be delivered to a group of children aged 7-18.Up to two members of the school’s staff, teachers or teaching assistants are invited to train to deliver the workshops by shadowing the practitioner using the provided assessment tools and lesson plans. Mind Mechanics training equates to 12 CPD points. At the end of the series of workshops, once the post intervention assessments have been scored, the trained members of staff are ready to deliver to new cohorts of pupils.Thus leading to a very sustainable intervention which offers excellent value for money
Improved mental health, self regulation of emotion and behaviour and increased access to learning.
