Short answer: All of us, we have members age 6-80!
Longer answer: Elise here, the founder of The Pocket Mentor. My quest began a few years ago after leaving University. I was lucky enough to get a job in the big wide world but soon found I was unprepared for the challenges of everyday life, from coping when something went wrong at work to motivating myself up in the morning. The more I spoke to others, the more I realised I wasn't alone... So, how was it possible for us to go through 14 odd years of formal education and still come out unprepared for the challenges of the real world?
What was missing? Mental strength and resilience education. Ta dah, The Pocket Mentor was born! I set out to fill this gap in our education and create a toolkit for young people, however... as I researched I noticed that mental strength and mental wellbeing is not only important but crucial for ALL of us... No matter our age, background or role.
We've had teens use it independently, teachers use it with their class, parents use it with their younger children at home, university students, adult professionals, and even my grandma!
No matter which path we choose in life, the greatest tool we have to help us succeed and be happy is our brain, yet we’re never formally taught how it works, how to look after it, or how it works best. The good thing is, it’’s never too early or too late to starting develop mental strength and mental wellbeing habits, no matter our age, background or role.
Whatever our start point, we can always improve - to enable our greatest tool, our brain, to work at it's best and help us thrive.
