Framework

The iheart education framework is based on core principles that are built into all of our evidence-based programmes, and can be summarised as follows:

RE-EDUCATING youth about their mental health & wellbeing.

It is crucial that young people (and everyone really, but we focus on youth) understand that they are whole, well and resilient. When this is not understood, we can easily become convinced that we have a ‘mental health problem’, reinforcing the belief that we are deficient and lack resilience.

REDEFINING mental health.

Mental health is knowing there will be moments when we will not experience our wellbeing, but never doubting it is within. This is the difference between feeling hopeful and feeling hopeless.

UNCOVERING wellbeing

Not installing it. Nor building it. iheart explains that wellbeing is innate to the human psychological system; it’s already there, our natural setting. It doesn’t need to be acquired, developed or installed.

NORMALISING the human experience.

No one experiences their wellbeing 24/7. It is essential that young people recognise that wellbeing always resides within them, even when they are not experiencing it.

EMPOWERING young people.

Exploring why wellbeing is covered up and how it can get uncovered again is very empowering. We do not teach them to wait until discomfort passes. Rather we show them that they have the resilience to manage setbacks and overcome adversity, no matter what.

PROVIDING youth with an instruction manual for life.

We explain why they think, feel and behave the way they do. They develop a roadmap to navigate their journey through life, which comes complete with signposts, a compass and a North Star!

This is iheart.
Resilience education for today’s youth.

 

What if every young person had a resilience instruction manual
that could help them create a better, brighter future?
