Mentor is the UK’s leading voice on early intervention and prevention, bringing together the best in international scientific research and on-the-ground practice to develop evidence-based programmes and resources. They advocate a holistic approach to building children and young people’s resilience to risk in order to empower them to make positive choices that support their physical, mental and social well-being as they transition into adulthood.
At Mentor, they take a holistic approach to preventing the misuse of alcohol and drugs. They work closely with partners in the public, private, voluntary and independent sectors to provide community-based support for children and the adults in their lives.
The approach is rooted in building young people’s resilience, helping them develop the life skills they need in order to negotiate challenging situations. They provide children and young people with age-appropriate knowledge and skills coupled with positive health values to help them build the self-confidence to make their own decisions.
The work is based on the best international scientific evidence, helping to create a future generation of resilient young people equipped to thrive in the modern world.
