PULSE Flashmob #lifesupsanddowns

On Saturday 26 April, 50 children and young people from PULSE (Lancashire's Children and Young People's Health and Wellbeing Board) and Ashton Primary School performed a flashmob in the Fishergate Shopping Centre, Preston.

The flashmob launched PULSE's emotional health and wellbeing campaign which aims to raise awareness of the emotional health and wellbeing issues faced by children and young people and reminding them that there are little things they can do to help improve their mood.

The campaign promotes the following five ways to wellbeing, under the umbrella of 'Coping with life's ups and downs':

  • Take Time Out
  • Keep Connected
  • Try Something New
  • Give
  • Be Active

View the flashmob at the following link:  The initial reaction has been very positive and we would like to ask you to share the video with your networks, family and friends and encourage people to 'tweet' their comments to @LancashireYPS, using the hash tag #lifesupsanddowns.

Schools and other groups will be performing the flashmob in their own settings throughout the summer term.  If you know of any schools and groups that are interested in participating, or if you would like further information, please contact
