Welcome to the Flourishing section of the toolkit

What is the Flourishing section?

It is a resource that gives information, ideas and activities to help promote positive mental health (flourishing) in all children and young people. It also aims to help prevent the difficulties described in the Troubling Behaviours section and to help improve your own mental health and create a flourishing community.

Who is it for?

This section was designed for parents, carers and anyone working with infants, children and young people (for example: teachers, social workers, foster carers, health workers, school nurses, nursery nurses, etc).

Why was it developed?

This section was developed to fulfil Commitment 1 of the Scottish Government’s policy and action plan: Towards a Mentally Flourishing Scotland (2009) . It was designed to help you make a difference to children and young people's lives, by giving you ideas and activities to help them to flourish.

We hope you will find it useful and we welcome your feedback on how to make it better.
