About Organisation

The Discovery Project is a partnership initiative from Dorset HealthCare and Dorset Mental Health Forum. In The Discovery Project we combine the expertise of NHS Healthcare Professionals, the lived experience of Peer Specialists and the voice of Young People to create spaces to explore and share what mental health, recovery, and wellbeing means by looking at what matters to you.

We’re not a clinical intervention. Our Project works across the whole of Dorset with schools, charities, and a wide variety of organisations to create an offer for Young People (13-25) and their parents/ carers.

What we offer

  • Discovery Profiles - A chance to discuss what path your discovery journey might take.
  • A Large Programme of Topics - Learning, Exploring and Understanding Mental Health. From Worksheets to Workshops, and everything in between.
  • Discovery Podcasts
  • YP Community - Have your say, share your thoughts. This is where young people say what matters most to them and what would be useful for the project to do.
  • The Book of Oofs - An advice booklet made by young people from the Quay School.

And plenty more...

As a Project we’re always evolving. Doing that means we have Young People’s voices right at the heart of our project.
