Building Children's Emotional Resilience

Children today need emotional resilience skills more than ever after the global pandemic. They have experienced an unhealthy amount of loss, social isolation and change. Whilst we are all getting on now like nothing happened, a lot of children have missed out on years of social development and are still afraid. This needs to be addressed otherwise these side effects  will be taken into adulthood and potentially scar their whole future.

Lighter Minds can fill this gap by teaching children the emotional resilience skills that they need to live a successful and happy life. Lainy has a tried and tested Childrens Emotional First Aid Kit that created


  • Cyber Bullying and Bullying
  • Emotional resilience
  • LGBT+ Issues
  • Vaping, Drink, Legal highs or Drugs
  • Building confidence
  • Suicidal thoughts and feelings
  • Self harm
  • Preparation for SATS

Bespoke workshops can be designed
