Org 1825- Therapy Center for young adults

1825 wants young adults to have access to support and treatment on their terms. They work to give young adults between the ages of 18 and 25 priority in the work for mental health by reducing the stigma and increase awarnesse about mental illness among young adults. Org 1825 works in partnership with various agencies to have a wider reach and contributes with their expert knowledge in psychological support.

Today, there are almost one million people in Sweden between 18 – 25 years. This target group falls in the gap between adolescent psychiatry and adult psychiatry, which in combination with limited resources results in inadequate support for the young people at that age. 

 That is why 1825 runs a Therapy Center for young adults: 

  • Young people’s personal finances should not limit the possibility of support. Therefore, they have a low patient fee to be accessible to young adults with limited funds. 
  • Strict national guidelines and restrictive regional decisions should not make it impossible for young adults to get the help they need. There is not one therapy method that works for everyone. Therefore, we offer different therapy methods and are based on each young adult’s own needs. 
  • The actual and perceived availability of psychotherapeutic support must increase. The stigma surrounding mental illness is greater in certain groups and social contexts. Therefore, Org 1825 collaborate with other actors who meet young adults in various contexts. 
  • The methods, the therapist’s understanding of the youths situation and the environment in which the therapy takes place, is important for the outcome of the therapy.  

The support from H.M. Queen Silvia’s Foundation – Care About the Children has made it possible for 1825 to run the project “Finally IRL – important conversations in groups”. Through the project, 1825 want to facilitate the step into adulthood. The graduation is the start of a new phase and for many a step into a more uncertain existence. 1825 see a great need to offer young people a forum to reflect and find strategies, meet future challenges and deal with emotions such as anxiety and stress. The group discussions in this project aim to strengthen young people’s ability to express emotions, reduce self-criticism and increase self-compassion. The benefits of group support are that it provides the opportunity to share thoughts and feelings, feel connected and be able to give and receive support. The method is based on experience-based knowledge of working with support groups in Sweden and the Nordic countries since the late 1980s.
