SEDi fills a significant void internationally, meeting the need within countries for a structure of support that enables them to build and maintain emotional resilience.

To create deep self-awareness, knowledge and skills needed to recognise then manage powerful emotions, communities need to create a local capability within a structured learning and development process. There is a socioeconomic value from communities being encouraged to feel and show empathy, establish positive relationships, and make responsible life decisions.

The SEDi approach is to establish emotionally safe environments and a qualified local support, that helps the wider community develop skills to have healthier, happier and more stable lives.
