What we do > Mental Wellbeing
At Ubuntu Scotland, we recognise the immeasurable value and importance of looking after personal mental wellbeing and the significance of this in positively approaching and dealing with real-world situations.
Our Mental Wellbeing workshops focus on measures around preventative mental health including self-care and mindfulness plans, breathing and coping mechanisms to deal with stressful situations and counselling techniques to support emotional incidents that may occur.
To highlight the importance of early identification of mental health problems and eliminate the stigma of preventative techniques to tackle the growing crisis of undiagnosed and untreated children’s mental health.
To support young people to build emotional resilience to help cope with and bounce back from adversity and ultimately help to prevent the development of mental health problems in later life.
To develop self-awareness in the present moment with an attitude of kindness and utilising this inner positive strength to overcome difficult situations.
To encourage a sense of autonomy and independence so that young people feel that they are in control of, or can deal with the emotional aspects of their lives in an assured manner.
To recognise the importance of positive emotional wellbeing and happiness above all other aspects of life, and how having a trustworthy support network is vital.
