Addressing Mental Health, Not Mental Illness

Last week we welcomed another 16 trainee facilitators into the iheart centre with a shared vision of developing the skills and capability to educate young people about their innate mental health and resilience. Over the past 18 months, we have trained over 230 teachers, educators, youth workers and mental health professionals, all passionate about ending the mental crisis facing our youth. The facilitator training forms part of the iheart Academy, which aims to provide a solution to the mental health and wellbeing puzzle that society wishes to solve by addressing the problem at its source.

After an intense 4 days of in-depth learning of the iheart curriculum, we look forward to having the facilitators join us for their practicum training on 23rdand 24thSeptember, where they will develop skills in programme delivery, prior to being awarded certification as facilitators of the iheart curriculum.

“I have been teaching for 17 years in private and state educational settings. During this time, I have developed and produced qualifications for City & Guilds, Pearson’s and AQA and nothing has come close to having the impact on children and young people that I believe the iheart curriculum will have.” Thomas Brosnan, Project lead for Design & Technology and Behaviour Therapist at Shaftesbury High School, Harrow.

Our next facilitator training is in November and has only 10 places remaining. Enrolment is still open so if you would like to discuss the possibility of becoming an iheart facilitator please contact;
