Discover Wellbeing is a creative mental health and wellbeing programme that took place in five schools in the West Midlands.
The programme worked with Year 5 children and class teachers to improve mental health in schools and help 300 children achieve the Arts Award ‘Discover’ qualification. The programme offered music, drama and movement opportunities which focused on the subject of mental health. Discover Wellbeing also provided teacher training to support creative approaches to mental health in the classroom.
Over six weeks, children were given opportunities to share words, feelings and perceptions relating to building resilience and wellbeing through arts activities and performance.
