Harnessing the Power of Storytelling for Wellbeing
At Verbal, our commitment lies in forging meaningful partnerships with organisations, statutory agencies, schools, charities and funders. Our primary objective is to establish a safe and creative environment for children and young people, particularly those at risk or under care.
The Significance of Storytelling:
We recognise the profound impact of storytelling in facilitating understanding and communication within our communities. Our approach provides a structured and safe pathway to navigate challenging discussions.
Evidence-Based Models Shaped by Children & Young people:
Our methodologies are not only grounded in research (our research) but are also co-designed and co-produced by young individuals. Their invaluable insights, derived from personal experiences and knowledge, ensure that our programmes resonate authentically with their peers.
Promoting Emotional Wellbeing:
Through our structured activities, participants gain an enriched understanding of their emotional states. We guide them in identifying and adopting positive coping mechanisms, empowering them to proactively manage and enhance their mental health.
