Tackle It is Derby County Community Trust’s wellbeing programme (early-intervention) for 12-17 year old males who are struggling with their mental wellbeing.
The sessions aim to give participants a ‘safe space’ to chat, socialise and take part in fun activities. The aim is to keep a relaxed atmosphere where people can meet others who may be experiencing similar challenges.
Tackle It is part of our wider Winning Minds project, supporting youth mental health and social action and funded through Sport England.
We collaborate with our local CAMHS service to provide support for participants who may be already working with them or be on a waiting list for NHS support.
Participants get the opportunity to take part in various activities, including video games, table tennis and healthy cooking.

"Tackle It really helps my son with his confidence, which has been a huge benefit for him academically. Spending time at Tackle It has shown my son that he can have fun without a console and I can’t thank the Tackle It team enough, they have helped my son in so many ways and have been supportive in every aspect of his life. The sessions have also helped my son and I communicate better."
