Connecting to Recovery
From 29-01-2021 2:00 PM
To 29-01-2021 5:15 PM

This group is for young adults aged 16-25 who would like to connect in a group environment to work towards improving their mental health. Humans are social beings, and research tells us that the benefit of safe social connections that offer shared experiences and a sense of belonging cannot be underestimated (Department of Health). The group will include education and practice of different therapeutic skills combined with different educational topics (cyber safety, drugs and alcohol, sleep, healthy relationships to name a few) and will be an activity based, flexible group.

Who: Any young person aged between 16 to 25 years experiencing a mental health difficulty who would like to connect with other young people to work together to support their mental health and wellbeing.

DBT is an evidence-based therapy originally designed for individuals with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder, but it can also be helpful for anyone with difficulty tolerating intense and distressing emotions and experiences. This group is for young people aged 16-25 years who experience intense or painful emotions and who would like to learn helpful ways of coping with their distress. This program is a 12 week skills group. Research suggests that brief skills training groups have been shown to lead to a decrease in unhelpful behaviours and an improvement in coping skills. (McMain et al., 2016).
