MiLife Blue is a brand new resource developed by young people, for young people in response to the effects of trauma on mental health and emotional wellbeing.
It is based on a ten session teaching guide designed for use at school and at home to help young people understand what effects trauma might have had on their mental health and how they can build their resilience in response to those effects.
MiLife Blue started life as a project specifically linked to COVID recovery and was used by hundreds of young people in Essex during 2021/22 under the title 'MiLife C19', before being expanded to become MiLife Blue.
This video captures the reflections of the users of the MiLife C19 version of the program and the impact it had on their lives as they emerged from the pandemic.
MiLife Blue is a partnership project birthed in Epping Forest, Essex
