BOUNCE! Brighter Futures

BOUNCE! Brighter Futures. BOUNCE! provides mental health support to children, young people and families in Mid-Devon. 

Covid has resulted in dislocation and isolation for children and families, the support offered by BOUNCE helps get lives back on track. 

BOUNCE! aims to improve mental health and build resilience in children, their families and their wider school community, improving learning outcomes and creating happier learners. There is a large body of evidence showing that not only does counselling significantly reduce psychological distress in school children but also that their social and emotional behaviour, as perceived by their teachers and parents, improves. 

Research also indicates that school-based counselling is perceived as highly accessible, non-stigmatising and effective not only in reducing psychological distress but in improving attainment, attendance and behaviour. 

However, currently only a minority of children benefit from therapeutic services in their schools. 

BOUNCE! offers 1 to 1 long and short-term specialist child counselling as part of a raft of measures to support mental health in school communities. 

It has recently set up a community-based low-cost service to further extend its reach, making a real difference to the lives of more children, young people and families.
