Mellow Ready

Mellow Ready is a 10 week strengths-based programme for young people aged between 14 and 18, potential parents of the future.

Mellow Ready creates a safe space for young people to:

  • Explore their network of relationships
  • Discover tools to support their mental health including mindfulness
  • Understand their emotions
  • Develop empathy and self-compassion
  • Find out what really matters to them
  • Make informed choices about the future

“It’s made a massive difference to her…. people here were interested in listening to her, whereas at school nobody’s interested…..the people running it they talk to her like a human being…..”

Mum of Mellow Ready group member

“Nothing matters to young people more than relationships! As young people are struggling with developing autonomy from their families of origin and developing peer and romantic relationships, they are at a point when Adverse Childhood Experiences can tip them in the wrong direction.  Mellow Ready offers trauma informed relationship based-group support at this pivotal time of brain reorganisation and is great chance to address the growing mental health crisis among young people.”
