Trinity School and College opens the first AcSEED Wellbeing Centre
The AcSEED Initiative was set up in 2010 by members of the YoungMinds VIK project. The first year was spent researching the wide variety of support services available in Hampshire secondary schools, and examining relevant Government recommendations. Several schools were visited to review their experiences in detail and understand the gaps in current provision. There was a rapid growth in interest for The AcSEED Initiative, including recognition and support from local MP Steve Brine.
In 2011 the program won backing from Hampshire County Council’s Healthy schools program.
In 2012 The AcSEED Initiative also received backing from the charities Beat and Solent Mind.
In 2013 the AcSEED website went live. This allowed The AcSEED Initiative to extend it's activities nationwide, with all UK primary and secondary schools now eligible to apply for The AcSEED Award.
