Weaving Well-Being is the first Irish designed positive mental health programme of its kind which aims to enhance well-being in children aged from 7-12 years within the framework of the SPHE curriculum. This Positive Education programme consists of 10 lessons for each class level and is grounded in evidence-based interventions from the field of Positive Psychology, the science of well-being. It is underpinned by the concept that a state of well-being is not simply the absence of the negative, but the presence of the positive. The Weaving Well-Being programme gives children the opportunity to weave positivity into their daily lives through a range of activities in a variety of areas.

Weaving Well-Being is now the well-being programme of choice in the majority of primary schools in Ireland as well as being licensed by Outside The Box Learning Resources to overseas educational publishers for use in the schools in their countries.About the Authors:
