We create original, hand-drawn, posters featuring educational mental health themes aimed at families, educators, carers and guardians of young people. Our posters are designed to be coloured in together and proudly displayed in homes, classrooms and community spaces to spark curiosity, promote learning and invite dialogue between trusted adults and young people.
Protective factors include trust, education, self-awareness and reflection, vocabulary, supportive relationships, self-confidence, a feeling of control, and hope. Strengthening these factors improves our ability to cope with life’s ups and downs.
Colouring relaxes our minds and bodies, and relieves stress. Many young people find direct engagement uncomfortable, demanding and stressful. The format of our posters supports the sideways-listening and shared activity techniques commonly used by youth workers, teachers, therapists and medical professionals to help reduce the pressure of starting direct conversations.
