Thrive® promotes children’s and young people’s positive mental health by helping adults know how to be and what to do in response to their differing and sometimes distressed behaviour. The Thrive Approach® is appropriate for anyone working with children and young people - such as in education (primary schools, secondary schools, special schools and pupil referral units), social care, healthcare, local authorities and community groups, as well as for parents and carers. Based on established neuroscience, attachment theory and child development, the Thrive Approach provides training and an online profiling and action-planning tool to equip adults with the knowledge, insights and resources needed to develop the relationships that help children and young people to flourish and learn. The cost of this course has been heavily subsidised by Birmingham City Council for Birmingham Schools and is available for a limited time only.
At the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, James Brindley provide education for young people, aged between 16-19, whilst they are receiving inpatient care.
An internal hospital referral system is in operation via the transition nurse and there are many ways in which we can support patients with their education whilst admitted.
