Situation

Mental health can feel like a heavy, medical topic, something to be left to the professionals. The term mental health can carry negative connotations which increase stigma, reduce communication and prevent people from learning about and looking after their own minds.

Solution

Mindapples has been promoting public mental health and wellbeing across the UK since 2008. Our vision is of a world where taking care of our minds is natural and normal for everyone. We aim to make basic knowledge from psychology and cognitive science accessible, memorable and relevant for all and position mental health and wellbeing as desirable topics, showing everyone their benefits. We all have mental health, and the things we do every day affect it.

  • “I like that there’s so much that teachers can learn from it to help themselves and once the teachers are in a better place, that will already be having a hugely positive impact on the children before the children have even started thinking of their own Mindapples.”

    — Taran Sutcliffe, Kingsteignton School, Devon

  • “I loved all the visuals and the handouts/resources, can’t wait to use them at school! So excited to launch this to staff and pupils.”

    — Rajia Ahmed, Assistant Head Whitchurch Primary School, Stanmore
