Healthy Minds


7.00pm Wed 6th December


PIPS Programmes will deliver a “Healthy Minds” workshop for 11-14year olds at St John’s GAC on Wednesday 6th December.


Healthy Minds is a two hour fun, interactive workshop that introduces the concept that our mental health is as important as our physical health.  It is estimated that three out of four pupils suffering from depression or anxiety will attempt to hide their distress rather than ask for help. 


Our Healthy Minds workshop helps reduce the barriers to asking for help by talking openly about the fears that worry young people and stop them asking for help for themselves or their friends.

The programme also discusses bullying and the effect bullying has on pupils’ mental health.
