Messengers is a non-clinical social support program for vulnerable young people across the ACT. The program uses a social prescription model and facilitates voluntary non-clinical arts groups for young people aged 10 – 25 years who are disengaging from school and their community and experiencing mental ill-health, social isolation and a range of other issues.

Offering weekly arts-based groups, participants are encouraged to develop new artistic skills and make social connections in a safe and inclusive environment. This arts-based approach that builds resilience, improves mental and social wellbeing and young people’s acceptance of their diversity. Participants are encouraged to approach the challenges they face in school, in the community and with their families in creative and positive ways.  Messengers programs are specifically designed to improve psychological and social wellbeing via targeted participation in the arts.

Four art-based classes are delivered weekly during school term. Classes are facilitated by professional visual artist who encourages young people to explore identity through a broad suite of arts projects including photography, drawing, textiles and painting.
