Imagining Futures is a programme combining mental wellness strategies and arts practice for young women living in Lambeth or Southwark.

Imagining Futures uses drama, creative writing, music, photography and film combined with dialectical behaviour therapy and mindfulness to support mental wellness of 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 self-harm, social exclusion, exploitation, vulnerability, deprivation and gang association.

This project is aimed at young women who live in Southwark or Lambeth and have a history of self-harm or are at risk of self-harm.

Our weekly workshops will:

  • Use creative writing, photography and drama with DBT and mindfulness
  • Aim to build self-esteem, empathy and confidence
  • Be a caring, supportive and safe environment
  • Develop group skills and social behaviour

Imagining Futures is a project developed by the Adolescent At-Risk and Forensic Service (AAFS), and is part of national and specialist CAMHS at the Maudsley Hospital.
