Donegal Youth Service relaunch Young Adult Support Service

first_imgThe Donegal Youth Service (DVS) are relaunching their previously successful Young Adult Support Service.The service is in association with Aware and Mental Health Ireland  originally ran in March last year and was called a resounding success by the DVS.  The service aims to help young people aged from 18 to 25 to work together to manage problems and meet up with their peers.The previous group which ran from March 2016 was attended by 10 young people from the local area. The group met weekly from 11am to 1pm on Tuesday afternoons. Teen Talks Coordinator Louise Lynch called the support service a ‘conversational group’ who met up weekly for tea, coffee and a talk on the couch.“We asked the group ‘what do you want to do’ and allowed them to agree on the meeting time, topics  and the activities… it was a 12 week programme based on them.” said Lynch.Louise said that during the meetings, one girl would crochet, while another constantly doodled and that the environment was very relaxed. After the 12 weeks programme ended, over six of the young people continued to meet up afterwards. ” It was a bit of structure and socialising in their life,” said Lynch.It was originally difficult to organise a group, “getting them in the door was hard,” said Lynch. “18 to 25 is a really tough time right now, in one meeting we spent a whole 2 hours on the recession and the effect it had on them.”“The group is not what you’d think – it’s not a bunch of young people sitting around feeling sad and awkward, it’s actually really chilled out, fun, uplifting and interesting. I would recommend checking it out, you’ve a lot to gain and nothing to lose – there’s no commitment, if it is not for you, then there’s no pressure to come back but there is a fantastic opportunity to make friends, learn better coping skills and feel better.”Anyone interested can contact Louise directly at:Mobile: 085 2553816Landline: 074 9129640Email: [email protected] more information can be found on the Donegal Youth Service website here:Donegal Youth Service relaunch Young Adult Support Service was last modified: May 16th, 2017 by Callum LaveryShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal Youth ServiceLouise LynchYoung Adult Support Grouplast_img read more
