This Mental and Physical Health Discussion session is designed to allow young women to have an open forum to explore on different issues/ areas that affect them- all within a safe and supportive environment.
The discussion group uses the following approach:
young people get the chance to choose topics that are of interest/ relevance to them
they can invite specialists with expertise in specific areas to join the conversation
If necessary, staff will support young women to follow up any particular areas explored with specialist organisations
Each week young people are able to choose the areas that they cover, including:
- Body image;
- Physical health and wellbeing
- Positive mental health
- current affairs;
- Personal safety (online and offline);
- other areas chosen by the group.
