Weaving Well-Being is the first Irish-designed positive mental health programme of its kind which aims to enhance well-being in children aged from 8-12 years within the framework of the SPHE curriculum. It consists of 10 lessons for each class level and is grounded in evidence-based interventions from the rapidly expanding field of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology is the science of well-being. The programme is underpinned by the concept that a state of well-being is not simply the absence of the negative, but the presence of the positive.  The Weaving Well-Being programme gives children the opportunity to weave positivity into their daily lives through a range of activities in a variety of areas like resilience skills (including mindfulness) and developing self-efficacy through empowering beliefs.
