Youth Flourish Outdoors
YFO is a unique organisation, offering early intervention programs to engage young people in therapy utilising complex trauma focused outdoor adventure therapy.
The framework is backed up by new and emerging research in mental health showing the underlying importance of regulating the hind brain before accessing talking therapy, such as counselling. This is achieved using a phased treatment process of outdoor activities which allow participants to recognise their physiological states and emotions.
Supporting young people with both emerging and established mental health concerns, Youth Flourish Outdoors adventure therapy practitioners embed their practice with human rights, with neurodiverse affirming and trauma informed approaches.
