A Slice of Happiness, a project of Watford and Three Rivers Trust, has launched an online course to support young people, called the youth wellbeing spa.
Hertfordshire residents aged 18 to 24 who are facing redundancy, unemployed, or are currently on Universal Credit can sign up for the free eight-week course, which takes place for three hours per week in a group and helps give young people a new perspective on life and way of thinking.
TK Maxx/Homesense has funded the first youth wellbeing spa, which will launch on August 23.
A Slice of Happiness Founder, Caroline Powell told MyLocalNews: “The wellbeing spa is a really nice space where young people can escape what’s going on in their lives. They can remain completely anonymous and leave their camera off if they wish.
“There is no judgement whatsoever; it is a space to be open-minded and try something new with a positive thinking approach through the principles of mind, consciousness and thought.”
Watford and Three Rivers is the first area in the UK to be supported by the NHS to deliver this new approach in a community setting and A Slice of Happiness has received positive feedback from wellbeing spa participants so far. Founder Caroline believes this is a huge breakthrough in the mental health sector.
Young people who meet the criteria can sign up free of charge at asliceofhappiness.org/contactus
