Dorset Mind Your Head, our young people’s programme for schools ran a wellbeing week at Dorchester Middle School. Funding was provided by The Dorset Health Trust. This was the first middle school that we have delivered the Mind Big Umbrella Programme to. It’s a big milestone for Dorset Mind Your Head.

‘The Big Umbrella’ is an early intervention project aimed at building young people’s resilience. It equips them with the skills to manage and maintain good mental wellbeing.
