About Happy Space
Prevention is better than cure and
Happy Space protects the minds of tomorrow.
Happy Space is a wellbeing organisation working to prevent mental health difficulties through protecting, inspiring and empowering young people nationwide.
We want to prevent mental health problems from arising wherever possible through providing the resources that schools need to give outstanding wellbeing education. We envisage a time where mental health stigma doesn't exist and where every young person has the toolkit they need to help look after their mental health in the transition to adulthood and beyond.
We believe that Mind, Food, Body, Finance and the Arts are the five pillars of mental wellbeing. Those pillars form the framework for the beautiful guidebooks and accompanying Lesson Activities we deliver to schools nationwide. Our resources combine expert content from thought leaders, engaging design and interactive activities. We support students at key transitional stages, starting school, moving from infants to juniors, starting secondary school and leaving school.
Equipping every child in the UK with mental health and wellbeing knowledge could turn the tide on the ongoing mental health crisis and improve the nation's mental health for generations to come. Happy Space wants to protect the minds of tomorrow, today.
In 2021, our resources reached over 17,000 students.
In a survey of over 100 schools that received Happy Space’s guidebooks:
Teachers rated them 9/10 for usefulness.
Students’ understanding of the link between exercise and mental wellbeing increased by 50%.
Students’ understanding of the link between food and mental wellbeing increased by 80%.
Students’ understanding of the link between finance and mental wellbeing increased by 94%.
We’re advised by academics, thought leaders in the wellbeing space, school and university age students and wellbeing entrepreneurs. We are always striving to learn from a diverse range of experts.
