CHUMS Recreational Therapeutic Service ~ Football Programme. Some of the children referred to CHUMS are unable to engage in traditional talking therapies. This can be for a variety of reasons including challenging behaviour, anxiety or lack of confidence. Research indicates that non-cognitive interventions for vulnerable young people have a direct impact on improving their social and emotional capabilities. Many young people choose not to access mainstream services for their mental health and emotional wellbeing, but by offering recreational and creative activities alongside more formal therapeutic interventions means we can provide a wider network of support to suit individual needs. Many of the young people referred to the programme are on the cusp of exclusion from school as they struggle with their behaviour and mental health. By attending the programme it focusses not only on promoting positive mental health but also allows them to develop their social skills by building positive relationships with adults and their peers. The football programme focuses on physical exercise, which enhances psychological well-being and can reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety and improve mood. We recognise that spending time with young people, nurturing them and developing their self-worth, helps them to realise their potential and gives them hope for the future. If you know a child or young person who may benefit from this approach and has not been able to engage in traditional support, please call us on 01525 863924. ... See MoreSee Less
