Imagining Futures is a 30-week group workshop programme combining mental wellness strategies and arts practice for young women with emotional distress and/or at risk of self-harm or social exclusion living in Lambeth or Southwark.
Imagining Futures uses drama, creative writing, music, photography and film combined with evidenced-based dialectical behaviour therapy skills and mindfulness to support mental wellness, inclusion and resilience in young women aged 14 to 18 years old.
The project supports young women whose immediate and longer-term mental health may be affected by issues including emotional distress, self-harm, social or school exclusion, exploitation, vulnerability, trauma and deprivation.
The annual rolling workshop programme is a collaboration between the CAMHS At-Risk and Forensic Service and community arts venues in south London. It is a grant-funded pilot currently supported by Guys and St Thomas’ Trust charitable foundation.
