Innate Health Education and Resilience Training for Young People
Both RISE are intent on a paradigm shift in Mental Health Education and youth work, so that all young people learn to uncover their innate wellbeing and potential to become resilient, contributing members of society.
When it comes to the mental health crisis enveloping our society, there is a huge emphasis on putting out fires. At iheart, we believe in preventing fires.
Our transformative approach to supporting young people, teachers and parents is based on our core belief that: ‘we have everything we need inside us’ which is uniquely focused on mental wellness, prevention and education.
The iheart Principles describe how the human psychological system is an intelligent system based on a clear logic that explains the source of all feeling states, emotions and felt experiences. This system has wellbeing built into it and is always working in a logical way, which enables us to self-correct and reconnect with our wellbeing.

WHAT WE TEACH
Our innovative educational approach teaches young people about their innate resilience and wellbeing, empowering them with the confidence to overcome challenges and fulfil their potential.
iheart, which stands for Innate Health Education and Resilience Training, is underpinned by an overarching question of enquiry:
Do you think someone, or something, is putting a feeling in you? The answer to this question, either ‘yes’ or ‘no’, acts as a compass, informing us if we are on or off track and reconnects us with our innate wellbeing and resilience.
- Based on this enquiry, our programme teaches:
- What is innate/built-into our psychological system
- Why we think, feel and behave the way we do
- Why and how our wellbeing gets covered up and uncovered again
- How our built-in compass helps us return to our wellbeing
Work can be delivered in a variety of ways:
In Schools to classes of up to 30
In small groups in school, community centres.
Via ZOOM/ TEAMS

Schools Extended Local Offer Response
- How does the setting/school/college know if children/young people need extra help and what should I do if I think my child/young person may have special educational needs?
WE can help if your young person struggles with any of the following:
Resilience & Wellbeing, e.g. self-esteem, dealing with setbacks, coping skills.
Mental Health, e.g. anxiety, stress, depression, self-harm, addictive behaviours.
Motivation, e.g. progress, attendance, perseverance, problem-solving & attainment.
Behaviour, e.g. self-regulation, exclusions, disruption, anger, aggression, obsessive compulsive behaviours.
Relationships, e.g. tolerance, respect for difference, teamwork, positive relationships with teachers, peers and family members.
The Facilitator is a qualified SENDCO and so all SEND needs are catered for. If any are identified during the programme, needs will be discussed with parents and carers or school.
- How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?
The programme is delivered by a qualified teacher, facilitator and SENDCO.
- How will the curriculum be matched to my child's/young person's needs?
All programmes are differentiated to meet the needs of the young person. The programme topics are adapted to explore the areas that challenge the young people within the group.
- How will both you and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will you help me to support my child's/young person's learning?
Parents and carers are informed of each weeks topics and objectives. They are encouraged to learn along side their child so that they are able to support the experiential learning process at home. Questionnaires are undertaken at the beginnign of the course and on completion to offer progress measures for stakeholders. Informal Assessments are also undertaken weekly to review understanding.
Sessions are available for parents and carers.
