Holistic health for young minds

Practical skills to nurture healthy lives 

Our free healthy minds support initiative is tailored for parents who wish to improve their children's mental health and wellbeing. We provide practical solutions and tools founded by integral health experts (suitable for children aged 10+).

The Flame, leaders in Right-Mindfulness, Holistic Health and Wellness, ran a specialised free event led by mental health professionals and experts with an aim to provide parents and children with practical integral solutions, tools and support to reduce and overcome anxiety, panic, stress and depression that children and young teenagers

may be facing as a result of the current mental health crisis. We held our 1st event on Sunday 6th Dec 2020.
