How might we help students/teenagers deal with their stress?
Customer / Problem
Our customers will be teenage students who are experiencing difficulties at school or at home. Sometimes school or home isn't a safe place for all teenagers. Some teens need an occasional break from the routine of school or home. This is due to a lack of trust with adults who are carers or just because of bullying, etc. Having a place where teenagers can go to get away from it all can help them regroup and distress.
Safe Space is a getaway safe haven for students and teenagers under stress and in need of a break from their usual routine. The facility has great activities and facilitators for these young people to help them reset from mental and emotional stresses of school and everyday life. The adults who work in Safe Space encourage and relate to the teens that are under stress or experiencing difficulties in order to support them.
