Lifestyle Medicine

The latest research in the field of neuroscience shows that a combination of talking therapies and ‘body-based’ activities including good nutrition gives the best chance of recovery from trauma and improving emotional wellbeing.

Today's teens are navigating an unprecedented invasion of their psychosocial sphere with gaming and social media bringing forth a new dimension of bullying, harassment and body shaming. Furthermore dietary choices, lack of exercise, sunshine and fresh air are all playing a part in the assault of young peoples mental and neurological system.

We are the only educational and care establishment in the UK incorporating lifestyle medi-cine for young people and collaborating with award winning Harvard instructor and President of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine Elizabeth Frates, MD. Her collaboration and coaching with Edison Education is based on her latest book The Teen Lifestyle Medicine Handbook.

Why The Need For YP-MATS?

At YP-MATS we believe that properly timed clinical and therapeutic intervention can transform a young life and above all we believe that young people can start to make healthy choices with a new level of maturity and understanding.

Our mission statement is to enable children and young people with complex multifaceted problems to be assessed and help reconstruct their lives in a safe, caring, professionally facilitated environment; whilst putting them at the heart of their care provision.
