A cognitive behavioural approach to supporting
young people with high anxiety
We know that school learning, stress tolerance, confidence, motivation and personal relationships are all adversely affected by unmanaged high anxiety. And yet, across England, six in ten children and young people do not receive treatment for problems such as anxiety and depression.
The ReMind programme grew out of an identified need for early intervention in supporting young people who struggle with heightened anxiety. It aims to equip young people who exhibit early signs of anxiety with a range of tools to better enable them to cope with the stresses of everyday life, thus averting the development of potentially more harmful anxiety issues.
ReMind is based on cognitive behavioural approaches and is designed to be delivered by teachers, youth workers, nurses and mental health practitioners.
