For the past four years, we have been measuring the impact of our programmes and the positive changes they have made to the quality of adults and young people's lives to feel less anxious, stressed or depressed and feeling calmer, connected, resilient, happier and more compassionate.
The pandemic has affected us all in various ways. The Prince’s Trust recent annual Youth Index for 2021 shows the impact the Coronavirus pandemic is having on the daily life, mental health, career aspirations and motivation of young people. Something we all need to be aware of to enable our services and communities to support them through these challenging times. Young People are showing symptoms of poor mental wellbeing and more young people are feeling down or depressed than at any other time in the history of the Youth Index.
The pandemic has created a significant detrimental effect on young people’s mental health.
One in four 16 to 25-year olds 26% admit they feel “unable to cope with life”.
50% say their mental health has worsened since the start of the pandemic
More than half of young people “always” or “often” feel anxious
A quarter of young people do not feel confident about their future work
Mental health support is more important now than ever before and an increase in support and alternate interventions are needed in the community to provide accessible, meaningful and relevant wellbeing programmes to meet the needs of young people.
Our services will continue to support teenagers and young adults aged 12-15 years, 16-18 years and 19-23 years throughout the year ahead by offering wellbeing activities and mindfulness training programmes that improve mental wellbeing.
Our new Wellbeing Centre in Muirend, Glasgow is a very short 5 minute walk from Muirend Train Station and close to numerous bus routes for in person or online support.
Our safe and welcoming space is for the whole community to enjoy and explore wellbeing activities that empower individuals, increase confidence and enhance skills to promote good mental health to cope more skilfully with life's challenges and ongoing difficulties.
We wish for those who are interested to learn and experience new ways to relax and nourish the mind, body, spirit and soul to establish a better balance and healthier and happier lifestyle.
