New Young Women’s Wellbeing Project set in Nailbar
Thanks to a grant from the Brighton and Hove CCG’s Innovation Fund, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new project aimed at young women here in Brighton who are at risk of self harm/suicide.
The project will see us running two 6-week therapeutic group sessions in a Brighton nailbar – Powder Beauty. Our aim is to increase wellbeing and promote self-care to young women in a non-clinical setting, allowing them to talk through difficult feelings in a safe, women-only environment. Sessions will be facilitated by two qualified and experienced Psychotherapists and trained beauty technicians will offer manicures, pedicures as well as hand and shoulder massage.
The fist 6-week block is being offered to women aged 18-25 and will start mid-July. We’ll be running groups for younger girls aged 13-18 later on in the year too.
Jo Parker, Young Oasis Lead, says
We are delighted to be able to offer this service to vulnerable young women in the community; the rising rate of self-harm and suicide in our city is concerning. Our project is unique in its model of delivering a structured psychotherapeutic group in a non-clinical environment.
