Support I Matter
All successful journeys start with noticing new details that have been overlooked
Level 4-6: Support I Matter Relationship Health Thinking
Offer Support for the I Matter Learning Journey
We are currently working hard to develop the structures that will help us offer I Matter more widely in partnership with licensed practitioners and certified host organisations. Levels 1-3 of The I Matter Individual Learning Journey can support CPD for professionals, parents-carers, young people and adults. Levels 4-6 involve certification to support others who are progressing an I Matter Learning Journey
Offering support for an I Matter Learning Journey is a great way of working with your school or community to tackle the concerns about child and adult mental health and wellbeing needs that were rising before COVID and are now presenting with a significant levels of concern in all areas of the country.
What an I Matter Learning Journey offers is a structured way of approaching a challenging issues and making an impact on issues that are often tricky to discuss. The change process can be challenging so a commitment to learning is one way to gain support over time.

I Matter Organisational Learning Journey
Some of the ideas in the I Matter Framework can look familiar and straightforward. What is most challenging is the implementation.
Our experience has shown us that embedding I Matter Principles into organisational community and school practice is a key step that is necessary if individual practitioners and parents-carers are able to be effective in working together to help young people - particularly in the face of overwhelming current needs. We have chosen therefore to progress with a Community Hub model which aims to support longer-term relationships between GP's and schools and the development of shared language that supports skills building.
Organisational Membership also progresses through a series of steps:
+ Basic Member
+ Certified Getting Started Organisation (informed senior leadership and organisational development planning process in place)
+ Certified Progressing Organisation (focus staff development, access to pathways for parents and relationship skills curriculum)
+ Certified Committed Organisation (focus on partnership and inhouse parent-carer skills development)
However all organisational journey's start first with an individual development journey - that means starting with you!
