Tackle IT is a unique mental wellbeing programme aimed at young males aged 12-17

We are running an inclusive physical activity, wellbeing, resilience and gaming programe to support young people with their wellbeing.


Tackle is a Derby County Community Trust wellbeing programme (early intervention) for 12 – 17 year old males who are struggling with their mental wellbeing.

Derby County Community Trust will be unable to provide a place when: 

  • The young person being referred is on a waiting list or already accessing CAMHS services
  • Where an alternative specialist service would be more appropriate
  • Where a young person is having treatment for OCD, PTSD, eating disorders or trauma, moderate or longstanding depression symptoms, conduct disorder
  • Self-harm which is moderate to severe in nature and requires medical attention or where there is a risk of death or serious injury by misadventure
