Platfform For Young People – 4YP Swansea Bay, will deliver our successful State of Mind wellbeing programme which has been designed and co-produced with young people as an early intervention to develop their coping skills for their own mental health and wellbeing. Working one to one initially and also running peer support groups in the community, the project is positive and empowering and our feedback has been outstanding; we have already trained over 30 young people as peer mentors to set up groups all over Wales, even in lockdown!
Working online due to the pandemic has been successful for us and we will continue this practice until we are able to run groups and one to one support face to face, we will ensure every young person who wants to can access the project.
In the meantime we have set up a fantastic website that is run by a team of young people. Their motto is “for young people – by young people” and is a great place for young people to go to find a range of resources, tips, and tricks for mental health and wellbeing all created by young people who know what it’s like to experience mental health challenges. With new content uploaded weekly, it is a platform that young people can also get involved in if they have ideas of content they would like to publish!
