We are extending our reach daily both North and South of Ireland. With the support of Buddy Bench Ireland, a child who is fearful, anxious and confused about how they feel can communicate it.
Our vision is a future where each child is supported to thrive throughout their school years in a community that priorities their mental health.
We are working alongside others to build a generation who will not only be able to express themselves with ease and compassion, but also help those around them, and those they care for in future, to do the same. Improved mental fitness will have associated benefits for the home environment, schools, workplaces, the health care system and society as a whole.
Our aim is to deliver the Buddy Bench Aware programmes to 2020 schools by the year 2020!
