Getting young people together in a poetry group can be beneficial on so many levels.
Poetry has a unique way of helping young people open up. I have a lot of experience running workshops with young people with mental health issues. So many times the young people in my groups have completely blown my mind with their ability to face, explore, define and share their experience. I love seeing how young people grow when they start owning their words. We're not talking miracle cures, but we are talking about watching young people gain confidence in expressing themselves.
Our poetry therapy sessions are designed to help young people communicate their feelings and thoughts through creative expression. Our therapists use poetry as a tool to help individuals process their emotions and develop a deeper understanding of themselves.
"Thank you for poetry. I never really got into it at school but as everyone knows, Pete's poetry is different and brilliant. It's inspired me to keep writing even when I leave."
