Our reason for being
At Grow Your Mind we want to equip children, their families and school staff with the knowledge of ways to flourish. We believe poor mental health is a serious issue but awareness of our brain, resilience, mindfulness and compassion does not have to be. We are dedicated to continually making our resources playful, engaging and creative.
This short animation describes what we do beautifully and sums our our reason for being perfectly.
According to Beyond Blue, half of all serious mental health issues begin before a child reaches 14 years of age. We believe that the more we embed messages about emotional health in young children in a variety of contexts, the more chance we have of positive mental health outcomes now and later in life.
We are proud to be a certified B Corp which means we have met rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability & transparency. Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by governments and nonprofits alone. As a B Corp we are reinventing business and remain dedicated to supporting low socio economic schools and their families wherever possible.
In October 2017 we ran a crowd funding campaign to launch Grow Your Mind. We were quite overwhelmed by the level of support we received and overjoyed to raise $86,740. This enabled us to finish the design of our kits, begin production of our first edition and give the Grow Your Mind program to 3 low socio economic schools in 2018. We want to thank all our supporters from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible support and amazing start Grow Your Mind has had. We cannot express enough how full of gratitude we are and we will never forget where we started.
