Supporting primary schools


We want to create a culture that promotes and strengthens positive mental health and well being for children, teachers and school staff alike.

We believe that embedding confidence, empathy and resilience within the education system from the beginning will lead to positive emotional development as well as academic achievement, and ultimately lead to better outcomes in life.

However, currently…



More than 27,000 children under the age of 11 called for help with issues affecting their own mental and emotional health. (Childline, 2016)



Less than half of all primary school teachers say they’ve received adequate mental health training.



Parents are more concerned about the mental wellbeing of their children than their education or future careers.


Teachers have the ability to change the trajectory of a child’s life. In order to build self-confidence and resilience in children, they must have the personal and professional resources to be resilient themselves.

Our evidence-informed approach includes:


Strengths and Needs Audit

Stakeholder Communications Strategy

Tailored Action Planning

Leadership Support and Mentoring

Impact Measurement and Evaluation


What we do

Mental health is ‘not simply the absence of disorder but ‘a state of wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community’. (The World Health Organization)

Invincible Me focuses on prevention, not intervention. We support primary schools to develop a strategic approach to mental health, embedding a personalised wellbeing strategy into the ethos of the school culture and ensuring the whole school community feels heard, supported and empowered.
