A-Maze-In Mind Pro­gram

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

We are thrilled to have launched our new­est pro­gram to sup­port vul­ner­a­ble young peo­ple in fos­ter care, the A-Maze-In Mind Pro­gram.

Our pro­gram has been de­vel­oped by a qual­i­fied coun­sel­lor who has ex­ten­sive trauma and are at greater risk of ex­pe­ri­enc­ing men­tal health prob­lems.

The pro­gram has two ma­jor ob­jec­tives. The first be­ing to pro­vide psy­choe­d­u­ca­tion on the two most preva­lent men­tal health is­sues be­ing anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion.

The sec­ond is to teach these vul­ner­a­ble young peo­ple prac­ti­cal tools and tech­niques they can use now and in the fu­ture to help man­age their own men­tal health and well be­ing. The pro­gram can be de­liv­ered on­line through an on-line class­room that is ac­ces­si­ble via com­puter, lap­top, tablet or smart phone. It can also be de­liv­ered in per­son in group set­tings with our Ther­apy Dog, (pic­tured). Both op­tions are one hour ses­sions over a six week pe­riod. In ad­di­tion to this pro­gram we are also of­fer­ing par­tic­i­pants up to 10, free of charge, one on one coun­selling ses­sions with our coun­sel­lor for young peo­ple in out of home care.

An­gel,

The 6 week pro­gram is also avail­able for young peo­ple not in out of home care for a small fee. We are NDIS ap­proved.
