WE SUPPORT YOUNG PEOPLE WITH POOR EMOTIONAL & MENTAL HEALTH
A.C.E. delivers solution focussed interventions to suit the needs of individuals or groups. Our trained and experienced workers use discussions, games, art and craft, drama and role play, to increase resilience and improve emotional and mental health and wellbeing.
This service is currently available for young people aged 11 -25 in the Lancaster, Morecambe, Carnforth, Kirkham and Fleetwood and takes place in schools, GP surgeries and community settings.
We are seeking fund to extend the service to other areas and to children and adults.
Young people referred to the service are offered either individual support or group work to tackle the causes of poor emotional health and wellbeing and are encouraged to set goals to overcome them and build resiliance.
Our services include the following
A.C.E. works with young people that are suffering from anxiety or stress, are or have been bullied, are having difficulty coping with their emotions, have been involved in a domestic, violent situation,
have difficult family situations, have friendship difficulties, have relationship difficulties, have low mood or have low self esteem or confidence.
A.C.E. also works with parents/carers and families to improve emotional health where appropriate.
Individual support uses a variety of solution focused methods to encourage the young person or adult to identify and tackle the causes of poor emotional health and wellbeing and set goals to overcome them and build resilience.
Young people identify being listened to and challenged to think differently. It is not only a pleasant experience but motivates them to change things in their attitude and behaviour which improves their well being and builds resilience.
Positive emotional health and wellbeing supports general health and achievement in life. Evidence shows that focusing on supporting emotional and social development can have a positive long term impact. We have evidence that our work makes a positive difference to the lives of the young people we work with by:
This results in better school attendance and achievement, better support network and more friends, improved family relationships, a reduction or ceasing of self harming behaviours and a more active lifestyle and community involvement
