Staying well and healthy

Health services available to young adults.

As young people move to adulthood we want them to keep themselves safe and healthy and know what health services are available to support them - including mental health services, and how to access what they need to maintain or achieve good health and well-being.

Assessing your social care needs, extra support to live well (18+ years)

We help adults who need extra support to live well.

Advice and needs assessments are free, but our care and support services usually cost money. If you qualify, you may get help to pay for the care and support you get.

After your needs assessment, we can refer you to see if you qualify for help to pay. Your care can start even if you have not had a financial assessment yet.

Shine Bright (NS) CIC - Teens That's a WRAP Group

The Teens WRAP Group is a 12-week wellbeing peer support group for any young people aged 13 to 18 year olds in Leeds, that are struggling to get well and keep well. The wellness group is based upon WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) which is an evidence-based approach that helps young people to get well and stay well. They write their own Wellness Plan and Crisis Plan, develop new protective factors to keep them safe and also benefit greatly from the peer support and new friendships that they will develop.

The Teens WRAP group will run on a Monday at the end of January from 6.30pm - 8.30pm. It’s a structured programme that is fun, safe and engaging which supports your Teens to be well, be more confident, less isolated, less anxious and happier!

Shine Bright takes referrals' from individuals and families directly, professionals and organisations. If you are an organisation or professional and have a specific group in mind that could benefit from WRAP please do also make contact.
