Nominate a student

Above and Beyond is an award that celebrates the positive impact that young people can have on the mental health of their peers.

Has one of your students gone above and beyond by being particularly kind and supportive to their peers? Is there an example of an intervention that they initiated? Have they set-up a mindfulness programme? Has a student instigated a buddy system in the playground?


The winning student will receive a trophy and £400 for their school to be spent on mental health support within their school community.


Terms and Conditions:

  • The student(s) must have gone above and beyond to support the mental health of their peers.
  • All UK educational settings are eligible to nominate one individual or a group of students, aged 4-18 years old.
  • The initiative must have been carried out by students for students at the school.
  • Nominations must be able to demonstrate how their students’ initiative(s) impacted the mental health of their peers.
  • The entry must be less than 250 words, showing evidence of the impact (quotes and examples are encouraged). 


This award has been created in memory of Jenny Jackson who suffered with mental health issues for many years and tragically took her life shortly before her 40th birthday.

The prize fund has been raised by the incredible efforts of her sister Julie Borlant who climbed Kilimanjaro in aid of Beyond in 2023.

The judging panel will be made up of Jenny’s sisters, Johanna Novick, Julie Borlant and Janie Jackson-Spillman along with Beyond’s founder, Jonny Benjamin MBE.


Please submit your nomination below.

We’re fundraising so schools can bring in urgent, interim mental health provisions.
