Writing For Wellbeing - Helping young people to explore how writing can help to boost their mood.

As we continue to develop new ways to support young people, we have been looking at ways which we can help to educate young people about new coping strategies which may benefit their mental health.

We have been working with And So She Thinks to develop a writing programme, ‘Writing For Wellbeing’, for young people between the ages of 8 and 17, designed to help them explore their feelings and emotions in an intuitive workshop.

Here is a brief description:

Explore how writing can help boost your mood, happiness and wellbeing.

Through creative exercises based on the Five Ways To Wellbeing framework, you’ll discover the benefits of words for wellbeing, and leave with techniques to try out at home.

We have spaces for between 10 and 15 young people to take part in this workshop, and are able to offer it free of charge thanks to funding received from The National Lottery Community Fund as a part of our Reaching Communities Programme.

This programme will only be able to run if we have enough interest from young people wanting to take part – so if you know someone who may be interested, please fill in the below form to let us know!

Made possible thanks to generous funding from
