CAMHS Discovery College (DisCo) for Bedfordshire and Luton
Free workshops to provide life skills and promote mental wellbeing are to be provided by the Trust for children and young people across Bedfordshire and Luton. The area’s first online Discovery College (DisCo) has been launched by ELFT's Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
It is open to anyone up to the age of 18 living in Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton and will provide courses and workshops shaped in partnership with young people.
The college will provide practical support to help maintain good mental health and learn skills that will help with day-to-day challenges. All workshops will be delivered by friendly tutors and designed to be informal and engaging.
A launch session for the pilot project was held on 18 October to explore what DisCo means. A detailed prospectus with a range of creative engagement modules will also be rolled out over the coming months.
