We work with young people using a combination of peer support and workshops to develop skills and strategies to promote wellbeing.
State of Mind
State of Mind is a Wales-wide project that works with young people between the ages of 17 and 25. The project is funded by Welsh Government and uses a combination of strategies to support young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
- peer support groups
- courses and workshops teaching skills for wellbeing
- 1:1 support (when needed)
- volunteering opportunities
- the opportunity to become a peer mentor, with accredited training.
We’ve learnt that peer support is a powerful tool for wellbeing. Meeting people who face similar experiences can help you to realise you’re not alone and the group setting means that you can share and learn strategies that could help you feel better.
Young People in Gwent
We work across Gwent offering support to young people between the ages of 14 and 18.
Our projects use a mix of wellbeing workshops and peer groups to support wellbeing. We organise peer groups offering opportunities to connect with people of similar ages and share experiences. Alongside this, our wellbeing workshops teach strategies that help develop confidence and self-esteem.
We also offer opportunities to become Recovery Champions and Volunteer Support Workers.
