Well-being and Mental Health Support
From this page you can find out about our projects that are designed to help you with improving your mental health and well-being. If you get stuck, just use the Chat function to ask any questions.
Who is this for?
Lots of people find that there are times when they are finding life hard, feeling stressed, anxious, or down. Sometimes people tell us that they are feeling things getting on top of them or that they have low confidence or self-esteem.
If you’re aged between 11 and 25, we have projects designed to help you with improving your mental health and well-being.
Please see the options below.
Family Mediation can help improve relationships between family members when things are becoming really difficult at home.
Family mediation provides a safe space to talk about how you’re feeling, and for your parent(s) / carer(s) to share how they are feeling, with a trained mediator to support the conversation. Family mediation has helped improve relationships and helped to prevent homelessness.
You may be arguing more, feel misunderstood, or like you no longer fit in. If you’re aged 11-25 and you and your parent(s) / carer(s) are feeling that communication has broken down, mediation may be for you.
Family mediation is a voluntary process; it will only work if people realise that there’s a problem and want to change things.
The mediator will meet each family member one to one, and then arrange a joint meeting afterwards.
We have trained Mediators in several of our Foyers and within our Supported Lodgings team. Launch Step Chat or fill in the contact form to enquire about mediation for you / your family.
You may come across INVEST workshop sessions in your school, college, or youth group. INVEST workshops are small group sessions which help you to explore your emotional well-being and gives you tools to help with emotional resilience.
In your school, college, or youth group.
Overall, I have learned that other people feel the same types of things and that it is OK to talk about things.
I’ve also learnt that people identify themselves according to what makes them happy.
Thank you for the great support, it has really helped me and I’m going to miss doing this every week. I honestly enjoyed every second.
Our Work So Far
Counselling sessions were delivered to young people last year.
young people returned home through Family Mediation.
young people worked with Future STEPS Talent Coaches last year.
It was nice to be able to talk to someone I didn’t really know, and talk about my worries without being judged.
The counsellor listened to me and provided achievable and realistic methods of coping for me.
Throughout the time I have seen the Talent Coach he’s made a lot of my ideas a reality, bringing up solutions / possibilities that I have used to get where I am today.
