By providing education, early intervention and prevention skills, it is our aim to alleviate pressure on statutory health services and to avoid the unnecessary escalation of mental health problems which can make recovery more difficult the longer they go undiagnosed.
Transitions in life are never easy and it’s completely ok to not feel ok.
Our Listening service is confidential, within the parameters of safeguarding policies of the individual schools and our governance board, and offers a private space for you to talk about what’s worrying you whether that be school, relationships, friendships, exam stress or anything else you’d like to talk to someone about.
We aim to engage and develop an understanding in 5 – 11-year-olds that feeling both positive and negative emotions are normal, and managing these feelings are an essential part of life.
We aim to create a level of self-awareness in young people to allow them to recognise factors within their control that are contributing to positive and negative moods, as well as guiding them on how to make appropriate changes to those factors.
We aim to provide support services to those becoming more independent as young adults and aiding in the process of transitioning to the workplace or other more challenging environments.
We engage with teachers in the implementation of low-level education surrounding mental wellbeing and how to go about this practice effectively.
We prepare teachers to recognise the appropriate signs and signals, while educating them on the appropriate points of contact to signpost.
Isle Listen is a charitable initiative entirely funded through the generous support and donations of the local community. Can you help us?
Every penny donated helps us to continue our work towards removing the stigma surrounding mental health and support young people.
Volunteering with us can be a very rewarding experience – and there’s probably more ways of doing it than you might think.
Without the generous support of people like you, we could not do what we do. Let us know if you’re raising funds for us or would like to support our campaign.
