YFO is a unique organisation, offering early intervention programs to engage disadvantaged young people through complex trauma focused outdoor adventure therapy. The model 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.
OUR MISSION & VISION
To enhance the mental health and lives of young people through adventure therapy, and be a world leader in adventure therapy.
