About the Event

Our charity's Young People's Wellbeing programme is a free community resource which has been granted funding from The Trades House of Glasgow to offer young adults experiencing stress, anxiety, sleep issues, low mood/mood swings, low self-esteem and confidence support throughout 2021.

Courses will be held in The Wellbeing Centre and will be delivered in small friendly peer groups for ages 12-15 years.

Seperate courses are available for age groups 16-18 years and 19-23 years.

This Level 1 life skills programme starts with an eight week mindful awareness course to help young adults understand the mind and it's relationship to the brain and body and the affect on thoughts, emotions and behaviour. 

The course will help young people develop vital life skills, tools and techniques to manage psychological, emotional and mental wellbeing.

The programme is a preventative approach that empowers young people to develop greater self-awareness, focus, calm, self-regulation, confidence and resilience.

What Young People Say:

"I have learned what mindfulness is and how it can help me in my everyday life and when I'm feeling stressed or worried." - age 13 years.

"It has helped me to stay calm in certain situations" - age 15 years.

"The course has helped me to focus more and notice thoughts but not to let them take over, because I used to find it very difficult to focus and to notice what my mind was actually doing." - age 15 years.

Referrals can be made through GP's, CAMHS, Educators and other professionals. Parents can also register a young person directly and any questions can be directed to hello@cultivatingmindfulness.org.uk  

A parent or carer of young people aged 12-15 years will be required to join a Course Introduction Session to learn more about the content of the course prior to the start date to fully support each young adult's participation during the course.
