Green Hat Wellbeing C.I.C. is a Community Interest Company (not-for-profit, or social enterprise) established by CSKidsBooks to help schools and their pupils receive resources that can support the children’s mental and emotional wellbeing.
Why we are doing this…
Before Covid, there was already much talk about a mental health crisis amongst our younger generation. With an estimated 1 in 6 having a diagnosable mental health disorder. Since Covid, “Nearly 40% of six to 16-year-olds, and half of 17 to 23-year-olds, said they felt their mental health had got worse over that time. (lockdown)” BBC, September 2021. Something needs to be done.
Huge pressure is put on schools to help the children, but little budget is given to do so. Teachers are already hard pressed within their roles. We want to give schools something positive that will make a difference to both the teachers and the children.
All books listed in the catalogues below are available to apply for. It will depend on how much funding we’ve received as to how many we can send out. We will contact all registered schools to confirm their interest and will then offer a budget.
Once you have your budget, let us know which books you would like, sit back and wait for your books to arrive.
There is absolutely nothing to pay!
Green Hat Wellbeing was founded by a self-published author who, in setting up this initiative, wanted to help other authors that she has met along the way to promote their amazing work.
All the books listed in our catalogue have been written with the mental, emotional or physical wellbeing of the child at the heart of how and why the books were written.
Each author has their own reasons and expertise behind why they have chosen to write on their specific subject. Please take some time to look at the websites listed to get more of an understanding about this awesome group of people!
Here you’ll find all Jessica Kingsley Publishers new and bestselling titles for kids and teens including books on gender identity, ADHD, autism and dyslexia, and a new middle grade wellbeing series on Facing Mighty Fears from Dawn Huebner, that children can read by themselves (or with a grown up).
JKP’s children’s books are fun, original, and relatable, and above all, they empower children and young people to cope with the challenges they face. It’s our mission to give a voice to groups who don’t often get heard, because we believe that establishing positive narratives about difference from an early age helps shape confident, fulfilling lives.
Here is JKP’s collection of new and best selling titles to empower and support children and young people throughout their education, especially those with individual circumstances and additional needs.
At JKP we are committed to publishing practical, supportive resources for professionals working in all areas of education, including teachers, counsellors, school leaders and more. We believe in establishing positive narratives about differences and embracing diversity throughout the education system, and a great example of this is our upcoming title GCSE Maths for Neurodivergent Learners.
