Girlguiding UK introduces badge to promote wellbeing in young girls and women

A new badge to promote mental wellbeing in young girls and women, developed by Girlguiding members and charity YoungMinds will be introduced from April 2016, the BBC reports. The programme aimed at seven to 25 year olds, which Girlguides will have to complete to earn the badge, aims to give girls a “vital space to talk about their mental wellbeing”. Young Girlguides will be educated by ‘peer educators’, and interactive activities will be used to help girls find positive ways of dealing with pressures and stress.
