Human Nature Adventure Therapy
There’s a massive gap in effective mental health supports for at-risk young people. One in four are living with serious mental health issues, and many aren’t receiving the help they need.
Frequently the young people who most need support are unable to access, afford or benefit from mainstream counselling. Although a young person is identified early on as being at-risk, there are few opportunities between the ‘soft option’ of counselling, and the ‘hard approaches’ of institutionalised care: psychiatric units, juvenile detention, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres.
Human Nature Adventure Therapy gets mental health interventions out of clinical settings and into nature. We exist to bridge the gap in mental health services for young people who are most in need of support.
We believe that all young people deserve to be supported to thrive in the face of adversity.
We believe young people can overcome disadvantage and trauma, to fully cultivate and share their unique strengths, and be valued and appreciated by Community.
