WILD MINDS – A new referral scheme for young people aged 14-17 experiencing mild to moderate mental ill-health. The scheme has been developed by South Cambridgeshire District Council and Milton Country Park.

WHAT IS THE SCHEME ABOUT?

This six week programme has been developed to provide young people aged 14-17 the opportunity to participate in a range of activities at Milton Country Park. These guided, midweek, two hour sessions have been designed to enable young people to try a variety of activities to build skills, knowledge and confidence and provide social connections within a peer network, supported by a specialist young person’s support worker, supervised by a clinical psychologist.

 The aim of the course is for participants to experience the benefits to their mental health and wellbeing associated with guided support and activity in a natural, outdoor setting.

If your doctor has advised that you are eligible for a referral to Wild Minds, please see the attached leaflet for more information on how to self refer Wild Minds Leaflet
