Sue and Hannah in 2015 identified a gap in the most important market – Children’s Mental Health. Recognising as specialist‘s in their field of Emotional Health and Wellbeing they could offer something different in helping young people have belief in themselves and understand what makes them tick, they created programmes for primary and secondary schools and formed InspireIgnite.co.uk
Working with primary and secondary schools has given InspireIgnite the opportunity to work with hundreds of amazing children. Being able to offer this to even more children from the most deprived area’s in our city is the next step and they have taken the opportunity to develop their service to enable them to do this.
Offering a range of training, their Mental Health First Aid course for businesses and individuals has been popular and for eachMental Health First Aid day delivered they offer a free days Mental Health awareness session to a nominated local school, giving pupils the opportunity to learn the skills and confidence in developing their own and others mental wellbeing. Sue said being able to ‘pay it forward’ through our scheme has proven to be hugely successful for business’s and young people in Hull and East Riding.
InspireIgnite.co.uk believe in supporting young people to understand their emotional well-being to build confidence and self-belief.
Sue Altass, with her 30 years’ experience in Mental Health Nursing, decided in 2015 that prevention of mental ill health was her new passion. Supporting young people to be able to understand their mental wellbeing and be able
to develop resilience and an innate understanding of their own wellbeing, inspired her to form InspireIgnite with Hannah Cheshire.
