A recent survey of UK head teachers has found that nearly half are struggling to get mental health support for their pupils.
A total of 45% of 655 of school leaders quizzed by children's mental health charity Place2Be said it was a problem.
As a result of the issues facing students today, The Limes College created the content of the app “Moving Minds” using the expertise of our on-site clinical psychology team. Once the content had been developed we turned to Gaia Technology for support in turning the content into a easy to use app that students could find out more about issues they may be facing, whilst using it to seek support and keep a daily log of mood and feelings.
From anxiety and depression to eating disorders and self-harm, Moving Minds is designed to equip you with the knowledge, attributes and skills to manage issues, challenges and responsibilities faced in everyday life.
