Mental Health and Young People Project

Mental Health and Young People Project

Working in partnership with Lifespace, Alcester Town Council (ATC) is working on a project with students in three secondary schools in Alcester to identify the mental health challenges facing them and their peers, so we can understand the type of support they need. Input has been provided to schools to help with their whole school approach to supporting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing.

The project will be working with Loudmouth, an innovative theatre in education company, to offer some complementary activities in all three secondary schools helping to support young people with challenges they face such as issues around social media, friendships and unrealistic expectations.

ATC and Lifespace are also offering a mental health awareness session for parents on Wednesday 25th September 5:30-7:30 at The Jubilee Centre for any parent interested in learning more about mental health in young people.

Here is a list of websites that may help support families and children with any concerns or issues they may be worried about.
