There has been a recent increase in awareness of the need for timely and appropriate diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in girls and young women. Without such a diagnosis and the relevant support systems being put in place, young women are at high risk of developing mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, self-harm and eating disorders.

This 30-session programme aims to ensure that girls can and do develop good mental health including appropriate levels of autonomy, emotional resilience and open communication.

This resource also includes a comprehensive PowerPoint Training Session for staff.

The activities will:

  • Promote personal and social skills development
  • Develop self-esteem and self-awareness
  • Empower the exploration of healthy personal relationships
  • Encourage personal responsibility for keeping both mind and body safe and healthy

The sessions address contemporary issues that are relevant to young people, including:

  • Issues around consent, safety and the law in relationships
  • Body image and obesity
  • Self-respect and aspiration
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Influence of the media
  • Self-harming behaviours
  • Using CBT and Mindfulness to build good mental health
  • The range of sexual attitudes, relationships and behaviours in society
  • Issues around the use of psychoactive substances (legal highs) and performance (steroids) and image enhancing substances
  • Understanding and strengthening intergenerational relationships
