BGC London supports children and youth to explore strategies and consider tools that help build resiliency and promote self-esteem. These age appropriate sessions are developed to be fun and engaging, and to promote a sense of belonging and personal safety.

Our weekly mental health focused programs run throughout the school year for children and youth in grades 1-8.

There is no cost to these programs as it is included in the BGC Membership and Visitor fees.
