Our Mental Health First Aid trained team will be paying the inspirational folk from Ty Hafan a second visit to run a wellness workshop, and unveil a brand new Beastie inspired by the hospice.
A new partnership has blossomed between Cardiff-based Children’s Hospice, Ty Hafan and London-born developer of children’s mental health games, Book of Beasties.
Our Mental Health First Aid trained team will be paying the inspirational folk from Ty Hafan a second visit tomorrow to run a wellness workshop.
Book of Beasties previously donated a number of copies of its resource Book of Beasties: The Mental Wellness Card Game and accompanying Beastie Guide to use with the children and siblings in the hospice’s care.
Ty Hafan were so impressed with the initial visit that they invited our team back to run a second workshop during which Book of Beasties will donate further copies of the resource and unveil plans to develop a free Ty Hafan resource with unique content dedicated to the Welsh charity.
The resource will include brand new Beasties, inspired by the hospice and the hospice grounds. Just like the one shown
Book of Beasties is a psychologist endorsed mental #wellness resource for children that aspires to raise emotional literacy, teach resilience, empathy and normalise the open conversation about #mentalhealth.
The early intervention is being used in a number of #schools around the UK and has been praised by the likes of Great Ormond Street, The Catholic Children’s Society and Dr Tony Bates, founder of the Irish young person’s charity, Jigsaw.
Founder and developer of Book of Beasties, Phil J Tottman, said: “It is truly an honour and a pleasure to be revisiting Ty Hafan. We are thrilled to be accepted as one of the hospice’s resources and are looking forward to working closer with the team and the children in their care going forward.
“We can’t wait to unveil our Ty Hafan inspired free resource later in the year.”
