A voice and a choice for our mental health
Right Here Bognor
In May 2015 Right Here was asked to deliver a pilot programme of activity based counselling activities to young people aged 13-18 and their families in Bognor Regis, West Sussex.
Activities included canine therapy, equine therapy, bushcraft therapy and a cooking skills group, Food & Mood to name a few!
The programme reached over 100 young people in West Sussex and young people told us it helped promote self-esteem, boost confidence meeting new people and being in groups, and helped them to feel more comfortable communicating with others.
The project ended in April 2016 and is being independently evaluated to see how helpful young people find activity based counselling programmes as an alternative to more traditional forms of support.

We look forward to seeing how the evaluation shapes thinking about activity based counselling in the future!
