About Project

Wondering how to support young people and their mental health in today's world?

2020 has been an unprecedented year for all of us, but it has particularly affected our young people.

Hosted by young people with lived experience of mental health difficulties, Rise Up will give you the opportunity to hear directly about how you can support young people and their mental health with the new challenges presented today.

In association with the Young Harrow Foundation, this online conference will provide:

• Young persons discussion panel: Offering you the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into the needs and concerns of young people during challenging times.
• Specialist workshops: A choice of tailored, specialist workshop content delivered by our consortium partners.
• New service offer and resources: A chance to see the new HeadsUp service offer, including brand new lesson packs and classroom resources to help you support young people's mental health as they return to the classroom.
• Creative showcase: A short presentation of creative pieces created during lockdown by our young people.
• Introduction to Help Harrow mental health support: The new referral service that brings critical support together under one system.
• Educational Psychology Service project: An introduction to the new 'Wellbeing for Educational Return Project' by Hugh Watson from the Educational Psychology Service.
