Stormbreak aims to improve children’s mental health through movement, equipping them with sustainable, transferable skills and coping strategies to thrive during the complex demands of growth into adult life.
We develop and deliver products and services to help schools and community settings shape culture, policy and provision of movement for mental health. Our flagship Surge programme, led by mental health professionals, empowers teachers and pupils to introduce multiple 15-minute sessions of dance, parkour, yoga of free movement into the school week, focussing on specific objectives such as improving confidence or reducing anxiety. It is predicated on a growing crisis in children’s mental health.
One in 10 primary school children have a diagnosable mental health condition, and professional support services are stretched and underfunded. Schools and communities are ill-equipped to provide effective help to children bombarded by overwhelming external pressures.
Testimonial from Year 6 teacher: “Stormbreak is making a real difference to children's lives, teaching skills that will allow children to have a natural reaction to negative situations. In order for children to flourish, they need to love and feel comfortable in their own skin. They need to feel confident and embrace their strengths. Stormbreak supports this.”
