Thrive LDN in partnership with MIND West London has produced a series of short videos to support young people, education staff, and parents as they return to school and college in the new academic term. The videos are produced by Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructors and other partners whose roles include supporting the mental health and wellbeing of young people. The platform also hosts existing videos that promote the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people.
