Arts, Resilience & Mental Health Project
Start date: –
Arts, Resilience and Mental Health (ARM) is an interactive, creative project working with some of the most vulnerable young people in Merseyside. It aims to increase their self-awareness, resilience and transferable skills. By helping young people develop these skills we will try to change attitudes and broaden horizons.
The six-week programme will explore the connection between mental and physical health, including the importance of:
- good sleep patterns
- outdoor activities
- healthy eating
- the effects of social media and internet usage on mental health
Our programmes can engage up to 15 young people at a time (identified by the school/agency as a group in need, e.g. disengaged/struggling with concentration levels).
Once referrals have been made we will meet with the school/agency to discuss the needs of the individuals within the group. These meetings will also identify the necessary safeguarding processes to deal with any disclosures that may occur during the delivery of the programme.
