Get into Summer 2021

Mental Health Foundation and Thrive Edinburgh

Mental Health Foundation and Edinburgh Thrive have partnered to provide a summer programme for children and young people (age 11-25) across Edinburgh: The Thrive Collaboration.

This joint programme supports young people in Edinburgh to take part in fun and engaging summer activities. Additionally, it ensures staff have the skills and confidence to discuss and respond to the mental health and wellbeing needs of the young people they work with.

The Thrive Collaboration offers a fresh and exciting public health approach to urban mental health that is built on explicit principles for action that guide, anchor, and align work along the wide breadth of its vision. Reflecting the priorities of the Community Plan, Edinburgh Poverty Commission, and the aspirations of the Regional Deal and City Vision 2050, Thrive Edinburgh offers an opportunity for the capital city to not only reduce the toll of mental illness, but also promote and protect the people of Edinburgh’s mental health, resilience, self-esteem, family strength, and joy. The approach taken is outlined in the Thrive Adult Health and Social Care Commissioning Plan1 and Thrive Strategy Roadmap Click here for more information.

The Mental Health Foundation and Thrive Edinburgh will lead training delivery and provide the StressLESS toolkit and resources.
