Step Up: Transitions

Step Up: Transitions is a three year coproduction project funded by The Big Lottery's Reaching Communities initiative that uses lived experience as a driver to create training packages for 16-25 year old's looking at how to support your mental health during times of transitions.

This could be starting College or University, moving into independent living or employment, dealing with exam stress, starting a new life in the UK, moving to Adult Mental Health Services, being discharged from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services or any other type of change that can affect well-being that might benefit from mental health support.

We offer a range of training sessions that are co-designed and co-delivered by our Step Up Champions,  young people (16-25yrs) with lived experience in partnership with health trusts, schools, colleges and community organisations across the London Boroughs of Islington, Camden, Hammersmith, Fulham and Lambeth. So far we have delivered sessions to over 100 young people, using this peer to peer approach to promote a more resourceful, confident and resilient approach to change. 

What do our Participant's think?

"Really creative and honest session, the tools are so useful for us. The sharing was very brave and inspiring- I struggle to do that myself so it was very interesting"

Participant, Islington

“Make the most of it because the tactics you’ll learn and the activities you do genuinely help.”

Participant, Hammersmith and Fulham
