What we do -
From its research, Happy Space has found that certain aspects of everyday living could prove crucial to the prevention of mental wellbeing issues. Those aspects fall into the categories of: Mind, Food, Body, Finance and the Arts. We think these are the five pillars of mental wellbeing. The five pillars form the framework for all of our resources.
We have a range of
guidebooks for children aged 3 to 18.
Our first 'Bobo’s Adventure’ storybook (Level 1) introduces children aged 3-5 years old to Bobo. Children learn about breathing and gratitude as wellbeing tools. It is interactive with pages for mindful colouring in.
Our Wellbeing Activity book (Level 2), for children (aged 6-9), extends Bobo’s learning journey to include each of the Five Pillars of Wellbeing through drawing and stories, with lots of fun activities to try out along the way.
Our Wellbeing Guidebook (Level 3) is for older children (aged 10-12) and is packed full of information and tips from a range of wellbeing experts. Designed to become a personal Wellbeing journal, it is especially helpful for children transitioning from primary to secondary school.

Finally, we offer a Sixth form guidebook (Level 4) for students leaving education to
move onto higher education or the world of work. At this crucial time in life, many young people report higher anxiety as they leave their structured support of school and home. Our Sixth-form guidebook offers advice and tips in an accessible way that
sign-posts young people to a range of support resources.

Evidence shows that the most effective way to reach young people is whilst they areat school. So, we think it’s a no-brainer essential that children should be learningabout preventative mental health care and wellbeing in the classroom. That’s why wegive our lesson activities FREE with every order of 30 books.
