Not only are these connections important for us as individuals; they are important for us as a society, as they promote cohesiveness and a sense of community. Many of the pressures we face today like exams, work stress and financial worries undermine our sense of wellbeing. Young people, especially, are under stress because of the competitive climate we have in schools and in the employment market and because of the shortage of affordable housing.
We have an Employability Course called Unlocking Potential in which each individual is supported and enabled to fulfil his or her potential. We have a Peer Support Group where young people support each other and eat together like a family and we have a Counselling Service for young people.
We also offer Housing and Homelessness Advice and support. Uncertainty regarding housing often weighs heavily on relationships and can be the source of poor mental health, impacting a young person’s overall wellbeing.
In providing support in each of these areas, building positive relationships with young people is fundamental to all the work we do here at BYHP.
