Isle Listen in Schools Isle Listen in Schools
Our aim is to equip the Island’s young people with the skills and resilience to navigate the mental health and emotional challenges of 21st century life.

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.

How can we help?

Transitions in life are never easy and it’s completely ok to not feel ok.

But when stresses move from being a tough couple of weeks to a tough couple of months, we recognise that you might need some extra support to get you back to feeling awesome again.

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.

5-11 year-olds

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.

11-18 year-olds

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.

Further education

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.

Greater responsibilities continue to fall to educational and teaching staff and our aim is to support you to be comfortable in raising conversations around mental health and how to signpost to appropriate further specialist services.

Primary schools

We engage with teachers in the implementation of low-level education surrounding mental wellbeing and how to go about this practice effectively.

High schools

We prepare teachers to recognise the appropriate signs and signals, while educating them on the appropriate points of contact to signpost.
