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 16-18 years.

Seperate courses are available for age groups 12-15 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've learned how to control myself and my thoughts and its helped me perceive both myself and the world differently."

"This course has helped me so much with my anxiety. I've learned I'm not the only one! I will use mindfulness on a daily basis now."

"I've got many reasons to love myself and to continue to try being happy."

Referrals can be made through GP's, CAMHS, Educators and other professionals. Parents can also register a young person directly or young adults can book themselves onto the course and any questions can be directed to info@cultivatingmindfulness.org.uk 

A parent or carer of young people aged 16-18 years will be invited to attend a Parent 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 if appropriate.
