Virtual Bounce Back - A Six Week Course helping young people to develop their emotional resilience.


Some of the courses on this page are generously funded as part of The Early Help Programme.


Do you know a young person who would benefit from a little bit of extra support during this difficult time?

Perhaps they would benefit from learning and developing coping strategies which will enhance their resilience, and enable them to better manage the challenges which they face – especially during the current climate?

If so, Bounce Back may be the course to help support them!


Bounce Back is a 6 week, youth emotional resilience course for ages 9-18.

The course teaches young people how they can combat stress, deal with emotions and reduce anxiety so they can ‘bounce back’ from the challenges they face in life.


The course includes:

  • An introduction to emotional resilience, get to know you games and activities
  • Identifying support networks and understanding the importance of having a support network
  • Understanding anxiety and how it can impact on you
  • Understanding stress and how to tackle it
  • The impact of relaxation on wellbeing & de-stress techniques
  • Understanding decision making and how to make emotionally intelligent decisions
