Supporting primary schools to create a culture that promotes and strengthens positive mental health and wellbeing for children, teachers and school staff alike.
We believe that encouraging confidence, empathy, resilience and joy within our education system from the beginning will encourage emotional development as well as academic achievement, and ultimately lead to better outcomes later in life.
One in five children will experience a mental health difficulty at least once in their first 11 years.
Children from disadvantaged families are more than three times as likely to suffer from mental health disorders as those in well-off families.
More than 27,000 children under the age of 11 called for help with issues affecting their own mental and emotional health. (Childline, 2016)

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 supports primary schools to create a culture that promotes and strengthens positive mental health and wellbeing for children, teachers and school staff alike. We advocate a whole school approach, which develops and champions sustainable culture change, making all individuals more invincible. We focus on prevention, not intervention.
