OPEN MINDS: The toolkit for positive mental health and wellbeing
Open Minds Devon is an early intervention service supporting the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and adults.
Mental health and wellbeing has never been so important. Almost 1 in 4 children and young people show some evidence of mental ill health (including anxiety and depression). 12.5 million working days were lost due to work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2016/17.
The Open Minds Personalised Emotional Toolkit
Through our innovative and creative approach we aim to equip people with a personalised emotional toolkit to support them in the best way possible. We offer easy to use, practical strategies for helping manage anger, anxiety, low self esteem, sleep problems, grief and loss as well as ADHD, ASD and SEND.
The Open Minds Approach
Drawing from a range of approaches including mindfulness, positive psychology and the arts we work directly with children, parents and adults as well as community wellbeing projects.
“Choosing different thoughts is making me happier. It is easier to come to school now”
