Active Minds Peer Support Group for people aged 11-18 years. The purposes of this weekly meeting are to:
Reduce isolation, which can cause mental health and wellbeing issues.
Make new friends in a welcoming environment
Encourage peers to share their experience and support each other as volunteers,
Through our work, we intend that the outcome of our work should reduce demand on health and care services, in that service users with mild mental health issues such as anxiety or periodic depression will use Challenging Perceptions as part of returning to and remaining well. It is encouraging that Telford and Wrekin social worker are introducing their clients to Active Minds.
