There has been a recent increase in awareness of the need for timely and appropriate diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in girls and young women. Without such a diagnosis and the relevant support systems being put in place, young women are at high risk of developing mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, self-harm and eating disorders.
This 30-session programme aims to ensure that girls can and do develop good mental health including appropriate levels of autonomy, emotional resilience and open communication.

A timely and ‘must have’ resource for mental health leads, education and social care professionals, parents and carers who are supporting the mental health of our children and young people.
The mental health of young people is becoming a very real issue for those supporting them in both the learning and social contexts. We are all aware of the range of issues affecting them in various and complex ways. This is the key driver in developing this comprehensive programme for young people. The need for prevention is paramount as is the need for such practical evidence- based interventions rooted in Positive Psychology.

With increasing numbers of children and young people affected by social, emotional and behavioural difficulties inhibiting their progress and limiting their life chances, NGN (now NurtureUK) has developed a range of interventions and support to give disadvantaged children and young people the opportunity to be the best they can be.
We have found that emotion coaching can offer an alternative approach to the high control aspects of behaviourism. This is an approach that recognises the need to provide children with opportunities to develop their locus of control, understanding and regulating their own emotions.

The 20 practical and accessible modules in The Wellbeing Toolkit for Mental Health Leads provide all of necessary resources to enable you to maintain and enhance the well-being of the children and young people that you nurture and support, while also developing staff confidence and whole-school approaches which will support the wellbeing of the whole school community.
This resource provides a knowledge base and set of tools to enable you to support the young people in your care in the most effective and ethically safe manner, drawing on a range of evidence-based approaches that promote mental and emotional health and wellbeing. The tools and strategies can be used easily and effectively by education professionals who are not therapists, but who would like to interact in a more therapeutic, nurturing and informed manner.
