Young People Today
We hear repeatedly that the mental health of young people is at an all time low with staggering statistics like 1 in 4 girls aged 17-19 have a mental health condition and 75% of all mental health problems are established by the age of 18.
It can seem tough being a young person these days. Whether it’s exam pressure, the desire to fit in, the need to get likes on social media or to live up to the expectations of others, there’s a lot to manage.
It can seem tough being a parent or teacher today as we work so hard to find ways to help young people thrive but often feel like we are failing them.
We’re desparately searching for the solution.

No matter our age, when we start to get an understanding of the human operating system, we start to uncover the source of our innate wellbeing, resilience and potential.
We start to see that that our potential and wellbeing is unlimited and cannot be diminished by the views of others, by results or by circumstances and that we have the resilience to manage life’s ups and downs, no matter the circumstance.
When we gain a deeper understanding of how our experience is created and access our own wellbeing, we automatically become better able as parents and teachers to support and guide children at school and at home.
