How many of you learnt about your brain when you were at school? With 50% of Mental Health Problems established by the age of 14, we believe that by learning about your brain and development this can help prevent the negative impacts of mental ill health and builds up skills, knowledge and the confidence to provide peer based support. Integrating neuroscience education, play, technology and psychological models of support, we created the Neuro Champions programme. This session will describe the Neuro Champions methodology, demonstrate game elements and share findings from our evaluation study.
