Good for Girls
Providing young women access to mental health and wellbeing support
The Good for Girls programme offers young women access to relevant, holistic early intervention mental health support in trusted grassroots community spaces. Good for Girls helps youth clubs become mental health hubs and extend support for young women outside school. Trained youth professionals create safe spaces where young women can talk about their mental health alongside opportunities to develop relationships, skills and tools to maintain positive mental health. Young women get support earlier, meaning fewer require referral to specialist services.
How does it work?
Asset-based approach: In this model, community youth organisations will play to their strengths, developing young people’s social and emotional skills and supporting them to better understand mental health and well-being through positive activities in arts and/or sports.
