MAC-UK works with some of the most excluded young people in London through a 'Street Therapy' approach to mental health.
MAC-UK takes mental health professionals out of the clinic and onto the streets to work with excluded young people where they are and when they most need it. They see young people as the experts in their own experiences and ensure services meet young people where they are at in their place and at their pace.
The Berkeley Foundation has partnered with MAC-UK on their NQ-INTEGRATE programme which will train two newly qualified mental health professionals in MAC-UK's delivery model. During their 12 month training period, they will spend up to three days per week integrated within an external mental health service, working with their staff and young people to replicate the MAC-UK approach and create changes within these services and the wider systems that young people interact with. The programme aims to help young people manage their mental health effectively and lead a full life.
