What is Platfform 4YP Swansea Bay?

4YP Swansea Bay works with 13-16 year olds in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot. The project offers
one-to-one support, peer support groups and the State of Mind Programme.

12 different art therapy activities to help reconnect with one’s self.

Art encourages the freedom of self-expression and helps one reconnect with themselves and the world around them. Art helps to heal one’s mental well-being by exploring different emotions and helping to tackle stress and anxiety. These activities will help you to realise that!
