Centre Based Groups
Junior group – 7 – 11 year olds:
Our 7-10s group enables us to provide young people of primary school age with an awareness of what mental health is as well as improve their resilience by working with them to better understand their own emotions and general wellbeing. By helping them to better understand how they feel and the impact their feelings might have on their actions we can allow them a greater sense of control and confidence that provides them with the resilience required to make the smoothest possible transition to secondary school and beyond

Senior Group – 11 – 18 year olds:
The number of young people struggling with ill mental health is on the rise. Our 11-18s group provides a safe space for young people where we facilitate honest discussions about what’s going on in their lives and how we can support one another to overcome issues we are currently facing. While the direction of the groups is organic and very much young people-oriented, the facilitators always have an intended outcome for every session, whether that is better understanding how we might experience low mood or anxiety, or simply how to increase our life satisfaction by challenging low self-esteem and confidence.
Ideally, those who engage in the long-term with the group will go on to overcome their biggest challenges and then support their peers who are themselves struggling.
