This guide is designed to help anybody who wants to develop or commission a resilience program to work across a school or local area to support young people at risk of developing mental health difficulties. In her role as advisor to the Big Lottery Fund's HeadStart programme in England, Professor Angie Hart developed the methodological approach outlined below based on her academic research, her work as a child mental health practitioner and her lived experience of supporting children with mental health issues. In addition, the research undertaken and the production of the guide has been supported by the University of Brighton and the Economicand Social Research Council as part of Imagine, an international research project exploring and developing resilience approaches to supporting disadvantaged people. Dr Becky Heaver contributed to researching the different resilience approaches, and appraising them for this guide.
