We work with 13 – 16 year olds in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot, with a combination of one-to-one support, peer support groups and the State of Mind Programme. We also partner with Barod to deliver workshops as part of the project.
You don’t need a diagnosis to access the project – we work with anyone who is struggling. We don’t try to ‘fix’ people. We listen and work with participants to find new ways and strategies that help to promote wellbeing.
Anyone taking part will also have the opportunity to train to become a Volunteer Peer Mentor. Mentors work with us to shape the project’s future, ensuring that it’s exactly what young people want and need.
What the project involves:
Weekly meet-ups in a safe and relaxed environment where you can be yourself and have your own voice. Participanst decide what areas of wellbeing they want to discuss and how much they want to share. In the groups, we will deliver workshops on topics that the young people ask for, so it’s a place to learn from each other and have fun in the process!
State of Mind wellbeing programme
A twelve-week wellbeing programme that uses a combination of strategies to support young people’s mental health and wellbeing. We believe that all young people have innate strengths, and connecting with these strengths is when positivity and confidence begin to grow.
For those young people who need a little extra support to build confidence to join in with the wellbeing programme and groups, we can offer one-to-one coaching and support.
