AB – About Now and Beyond

Now and Beyond is the UK’s only mental health and wellbeing festival for educational settings.

Founded by youth mental health charity, Beyond, Now and Beyond was created in response to the pandemic’s impact on youth mental health.

Since February 2021 we have been delivering a free annual festival packed full of supportive resources and bespoke workshops to educational settings up and down the UK (and internationally too!)

Each year, almost 1500 educational settings take part and since 2021, we’ve reached over one million young people, educators and parents.

There are three ways to get involved:
