Anxiety is the leading mental health problem in classrooms.

Referrals to children and young peoples mental health services are rising, almost 4 times since 2017.

5 children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem but only 1/3 currently receive support.

Anxiety is on the rise in the workplace too.

71% of managers report seeing signs of stress in their team as a result of the cost of living crisis.

The cost to the workplace of mental health conditions in staff is £1300 per employee, per year.

The return on investment per £1 spent on mental health is £5.30, so the benefits of a focus on mental health are clear.

And its been shown that

Mindfulness is the most effective treatment for anxiety after medication.

So what are we doing to tackle this?

The #MindfulMinute Challenge involves listening to our 1-minute audio tracks every day in May. The aim is to make Mindfulness an everyday tool people use to increase their calm and boost their mental wellness - and to raise money to fund our vital mental health services.

Calm Mind May will benefit EVERYONE, even those who wouldn't describe themselves as anxious, we all have occasional anxious thoughts.

Get your resource pack containing information on Anxiety and Mindfulness and Mindful activities which are accessible for all and are designed to be easy to fit into the school day, the working day or at home.

Sign up today, join in in May and begin your journey to a calm mind!
