This significant new resource is designed to support young people with special education needs (SEN) to understand what is meant by mental wellbeing and to help them to learn skills and strategies which will support them in maintaining their mental health. 

The Sky's the Limit is designed to be a clear, accessible and easy-to-use resource that can easily be used by professionals (teachers, teaching assistants, pastoral staff, and social workers) and parents with no prior experience of teaching mental wellbeing.

"This workbook has been carefully researched using evidence- based practice as a starting point - an exemplar of good practice! It clearly has a leading edge in the current market / ‘political’ and ‘educational’ climate for resources focusing on mental health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people – especially those with additional special educational needs and disabilities."
- Dennis Piper, SEN Consultant; and Behaviour Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Lecturer, Manchester Metropolitan University.

"This is a resource which promotes emotional wellbeing in a very simple way. I like the illustration of Flying high and think that it is an easy and exciting concept for young people to link to their own experience of emotions. I could see it being used in a school setting predominantly - either for small  group work or individually with young people.....This resource offers the chance for young people to personalise and come up with their own ideas and interpretation. It encourages creativity and thinking and this can only be a good thing for developing self-esteem, self- confidence as well as exploration and experimentation in a safe contained way."
