The Resilience project, a pioneering project to support the mental health of children and young people, who may have suffered adverse childhood experiences, is being piloted in Cardiff and The Vale of Glamorgan.

The resources are now being rolled out in primary and secondary schools led by Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, in partnership with Mental Health Foundation, as part of the Welsh Government’s A Healthier Wales vision for a seamless health and social care sector. Welsh Government Transformation Funding has been provided via the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan Regional Partnership Board.

The new psychology-led project sits alongside the health board’s existing child and adolescent mental health services and works jointly with local authority education departments. It has already directly helped 147 families and trained more than 500 professionals.

The project is supported by the Mental Health Foundation and is aimed at building the mental health resilience of children and young people through educational settings, as opposed to the more typical clinic based alternatives.

It is being achieved by providing new resources and bespoke training for education staff, as well as clinician-led consultations for education staff. The project also provides group work promoting children’s mental health, as well as direct interventions with children and their families.

The Resilience Project has been running for 18 months and has been extended for one more year. The resources can be accessed by visiting the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board website.
