Keeping mentally healthy has never been so important! Our children and young people are suffering with poor mental health now more than ever! I am in the middle of setting up a community project to support children, young people and their families where poor mental health has become an issue. The project will also raise awareness and reduce the stigma of mental health. It will also support other community members to become active in their communities.
My vision is to provide a safe, calm space where children, young people and their families will be able to access advice, support and alternative therapies such as: arts, crafts, meditation, well-being activities, 1:1 sessions, workshops etc
The money raised through crowdfunding would be used on a mental health facilitators course. I would then be able to deliver accredited courses on coping strategies to people in the local community and to the family members who have children with poor mental health. This would support us to raise awareness, reduce stigma and improve support for children and young people with poor mental health.
Improving the mental health in our communities will improve society overall! The end results of this project will have a positive impact on us all.
