Reeling veterans, is a special fishing for therapy program designed to provide, confidence, mate ship and reduce stigma. In particular, the program seeks to help clients:
· Build their self esteem
· Develop a support network
· Enhance their resilience
· Understanding of how thoughts and feelings influence behavior
· Develop social integration
The program is more than a ‘one-off’ experience. It is hoped that it will provide participants with a longer-term pathway to a lifetime of fishing and potential understanding of their mental health issues. Additionally, it is an opportunity for the participants to form life long friendships.
The program is veteran run, non-competitive and delivered by professional, Mental health first aiders and ASSIST qualified personal. As an entry-level fishing program, no prior fishing or boating experience is required and all equipment, including boats, is provided.
