Chillax - Youth Action on Mental Health Project
This project came about through discussions with young people on health and well-being. Funding was secured from the Heritage Lottery to run a project over 2 years and 2 staff were appointed to support a group of young people to raise awareness on mental health and develop workshops to go around schools and youth clubs. The core group of young people have completed the workshops and run them in some schools and youth settings but this came to an end due to COVID-19. The group are now looking at developing this resource online.
“It has shaped me into a more confident figure and has changed the way I see myself and other things.”
“I gained confidence speaking in front of groups and presenting the workshop. I enjoyed creating the presentation and working as a team”
“ I enjoyed going to the different schools and learning about new coping methods”
