Our Minds Matter Framework

Children and young people need support if they experience emotional difficulties. Our Minds Matters recognises that support comes from the broad pastoral care around them. Families, friends and professionals all provide support. They do it in different ways, but all have a role to play in the emotional health and wellbeing of young people. Out Minds Matters is for anyone who supports children and young people or their families.

The Framework encourages integration and sharing of approaches, and clarifies:

•  who is involved in support
•  what support looks like at different levels
