Mode Recovery and Rehabilitation, a psychological therapy support and mental health services charity in Stockport, is holding a charity Christmas Ball to raise much needed funds.
Mode is spearheading psychological support for young people, providing a single point of access in schools. A comprehensive spectrum of services is offered: 1:1 psychological interventions, advice and information, focus groups and workshops, made up of skilled psychological therapists and peer mentors.
Mode is raising awareness in how to bring about change, improve lives and help young people maintain important goals. The charity help people to explore their immediate experience of distress and shift their awareness to their (level of) beliefs and values assumed to produce the distress in order for them to regain control.
In a recent review of 100 young service users we found the following:
• They moved from a sense of hopelessness and despair to a feeling of hope and meaning
• They began to build healthier relationships amongst their peers and family
• They were able to develop resilience skills to help them overcome adversity and difficulties in their lives
• Overall growth in confidence and self-esteem.
Mode also provide healthy food and refreshments for workshop attendees for after school refreshments.
Susan McCormack, Director at Mode Recovery and Rehabilitation said:
“In our current school project’s we have identified a need and have provided services to young people who sadly the statutory services do not have the capacity to see. This is a national issue and that further schools in Stockport would benefit from our services. With enough funding we would like to expand our services further to reach up to 4 more Stockport schools in 2018, employing further therapists and peer mentors.
With up to £50,000 of funding, Mode can work to make communities better.
“In a recent focus group the young people identified that they would like to put on an event jointly between both schools to showcase the benefits of accessing MODE and to launch a fundraising campaign. Further funds would enable us to support these young people beyond school into the community and enable us to continue our work within more Stockport schools, involve other local agencies, artists, musicians and importantly families.”
Businesses can support the charity ball through ticket sales, one off donations, raffle prizes or auction material or even the offer of a seat for someone else who is not able to afford to come along.
