Healthy Minds

EarlyBird Healthy Minds

We will be delivering Healthy Minds Courses at Gosberton House Academy from January 2019. This is primarily a follow on course from the EarlyBird Plus aimed at parents of children aged 9 and over, however it is not compulsory to have completed the EarlyBird Plus to attend the course. 

 

This quote about the course is taken directly from the NAS website:-

 

The EarlyBird Healthy Minds programme is a six-session parent support programme to help promote good mental health in children with autism (including Asperger syndrome). Healthy Minds has been developed in response to recent evidence which indicated that a high percentage of autistic children are at risk of experiencing mental health problems in adolescence and adulthood. The programme aims to help minimise this risk.

Healthy Minds aims to empower parents, carers and accompanying professionals to understand more about the mental health issues that autistic young people may face.

During the six Healthy Minds sessions, we will look strategies that can help autistic children to:

  • build self-esteem

  • increase confidence

  • reduce anxiety

  • develop resilience.

Please contact the school, reference "EarlyBird Healthy Minds Course" if you would like an application form, please note that places are limited and may have to be appointed on a first come first served basis although priority may be given due to circumstances. You may also wish to note that this is not the same course being run by the NHS also called Healthy Minds.
