DofE Live: A focus on mental health, and building resilience through DofE

Monday, 7th Feb 2022 12:30 – 13:00

We take a closer look at the importance of mental health, and how resilience can be built through DofE. We are joined by Professor Tamsin Ford CBE – Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge and Kim Markham-Jones from leading mental health charity, Young Minds. We are also joined by young people and DofE Leaders from Central England who will participate in a Q&A panel discussion.

In our recent impact survey, we found 75% of young people indicated that the DofE has given them the opportunity to face new challenges and 84% noted that they had increased resilience. This session’s focus is really on young people, as we explore ways that the DofE can support them through challenging situations and circumstances that they may face as they move through life.
