Now and Beyond Information

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 an annual festival packed full of supportive resources and free 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:


Book free online workshops for your school. Search our army of youth mental health and wellbeing experts volunteering their time on Festival Day.


Our dedicated partners in the youth mental health space help us to create an engaging, jam packed Resource Hub full of lesson materials to support the day.


Tune in to our day of live-streamed programming featuring celebrity guests and young people!

Or do all three!
