Exploring self-identity

PEEL ZONE LAUNCHES

Launched in August 2018, PEEL Zone is an online platform which enables schools and other organisations to run their own PEEL project. For the first time, students will be able to upload and share their poetry and photography in a protected gallery section. On a mobile phone, specially developed technology allows the work to be seen as if it were a lenticular print; alternating between photograph and poem depending on the angle of view.

The innovative application also uses the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale (WEMWBS) questionnaire to enable students to share anonymously the effect the project has had on the way they feel.

PEEL Zone had an initial trial during this year’s July PEEL workshop, which has captured some beautiful and inspiring work.

PEEL DISCUSSED AT HOUSE OF LORDS

Less than two months since the launch of PEEL, the project was discussed in the House of Lords in light of increased mental health issues amongst young people. Bishop Rachel’s speech forecasts the introduction of the PEEL resources into primary and secondary schools, which will be piloted in five schools, initially in Gloucestershire in Spring 2018, before launching nationwide.
