Mental Health Leaflet:
We know that many young people have struggled with their mental health during 2020, and we want to make sure more young people are equipped to look after their own mental health and are able to support others with their mental health too. That’s why we’re starting 2021 with an exciting series of evening ‘Keep Connected’ workshops to help young people stay better connected with their own happiness, enable them to feel less lonely, and help them spread some happiness to others too!
Workshop dates and times
The workshops will take place on Zoom every Monday from 18 January to 22 February from 5.30 – 6.30pm. Places can be booked at:
