Youth in Mind offer a variety of different therapeutic groups for children and young people. The groups we offer can vary depending on where you access. When you attend a drop-in appointment, your practitioner will let you know which groups are available at that hub.
Each groups is made up of one 60 minute session per week for 4 weeks, and each aims to help you learn about different mental health issues by discussing and sharing experiences within a group of up to 8 young people.
Like our Coaching pathway, we class our therapeutic groups as “guided self-help”, which means that all young people who attend have a responsibility to try new tools and techniques in between sessions. Young people who attend groups also have the responsibility to contribute to group discussions and activities in a productive way, which helps create a therapeutic environment in which we all learn and grow from the experiences of each other.
We offer both junior (8 - 12) and senior (13 - 18) groups to ensure that young people are working with others their own age.
Please see below for details of our groups:
