Upbeat is a preventative resource to help boys aged 13-16 develop a healthier approach to their emotional wellbeing.

The 6-session course, which features hard-hitting video content and music playlists, group discussion, creative activities and (optional) spiritual reflections, will give young men a toolkit to take care of their emotional wellbeing, helping them engage in honest conversations and spot signs in themselves and their friends when things aren’t going well.

Buy it from the Youthscape store or your Divisional Youth Specialist, or read on if you already have a copy.
