What is Mental Health?

At Bridge the Gap, we help children learn more about what emotions are, how they feel in their body, growth mindset, authentic resilience and self-esteem and we also help them to understand what mental health is.

At Redwood, we have developed a very close and valued working relationship with Bridge the Gap - a not-for-profit organisation established in Derby to support children, young people and their families with Emotional Health and Wellbeing.


Bridge the Gap offer support for children on a 1:1 basis and in small groups. They also facilitate parent workshops to enable us all to develop a deeper understanding of feelings and the reasons behind these.


Bridge the Gap have a hub, located on Friar Gate, in Derby where they offer a host of other services, including Wellbeing Wednesdays - sessions for parents to have a safe space to talk.
