Evolve stage

Learn to improve & maintain your Wellbeing

The Evolve stage of your journey is all about settling down those difficult emotions and learning new tools and skills to not only improve your mental health and wellbeing, but to sustain it in the long term. The main program in the Evolve stage is our Space For Me program.


This program is all about learning the basics such as cognitive behavioural tools, challenging negative thinking, breathing techniques and more to move you from a place of discomfort or distress into a place of calm. Your Parent Advocate who you will be matched with from the beginning of your journey might help you identify other supports you may need such as counselling, therapeutic play, or support around parenting challenges. They can also provide you with advocacy support to help you manage other areas of your life such as welfare, housing, education, employment and more. 


Once you have completed Space For Me and you are feeling better, you will given the opportunity to join other activities such as art therapy, yoga and more. You and your group from the program will also be given the opportunity to continue to meet once the program is over to continue your wellbeing journey together.
