About the programme
This national Department for Education (DfE) funded programme was piloted in 89 schools, colleges and community organisations in six different regions in England in 2018/19.
The participating settings received these evidence informed training and resources to help them to develop a peer mentoring programme to support the mental health and wellbeing of the children and young people in their setting.
The 89 participating settings included primary, secondary and special schools, colleges and children and young people’s community groups. All were based in one of the six regions selected by the DfE: East Sussex, Ipswich, Derby, Oldham, West Midlands and Bradford.
