#Neveralone

School Tour

Bookings Now Being Taken for 2019

75% of those with a mental health condition start developing it before the age of 18.

7 in 10 young people with a mental health problem haven’t had sufficient help at an early age.

3 Children in every class have a diagnosable mental health condition.

Throughout 2019 and 2020 singer, songwriter and qualified counsellor Lily-Jo will be touring schools across the UK and Europe on the #NeverAlone tour.


LJ is passionate about making sure that every young person she comes into contact with knows how to:

A) maintain good mental health

B) know what to do and where to go if they are struggling.

Follow up programme

Throughout the school day, Lily-Jo leads her ‘Let’s Talk About Mental Health’ lesson one after the other to whole year groups at a time. For those young people who have been triggered by what is said, we have created a fantastic follow-up programme which includes:

– After School Clinic where young people get five minutes each with Lily-Jo who will listen to them, and offer some tools and resources to help set them off on the right track.

– Unlimited free access to Lily-Jo’s award-winning online mental health resource: www.thelilyjoproject.com

– Posters and cards with the site on will be provided to display around school.

– 21 days of inspirational text messages for those young people to break the cycle of whatever it is they are struggling with, Anxiety, Low Mood.

– ‘You Are Unstoppable’ video series. 5 videos with session notes to be lead as a lunchtime or after school club. We can work together to see if there is a local volunteer who may be able to facilitate this.

Administration:

The cost for the #neveralone school tour day, and the follow-up programme is £1 per student. This could be funded by the parent as part of a non-uniform day. We understand that school budgets can be tight, that is why we want to make this as easy and as free as possible for your school.

Impact monitoring:

We know how important data is for your school, that’s why we provide a questionnaire to each pupil before and after the school lesson to monitor what the young people think they know, what they actually know, and then what they learn about mental health throughout the school day.
