We had a Mental Health & Positive thinking work shop which 11 young people attended, they were taught how mental health can affect you or anyone around you in so many ways from depression to bipolar. We discussed what signs to look for if you feel someone is suffering with mental health, We also looked at how we can help and support someone suffering with mental health. Young peoples comments "I learnt about different mental health illnesses" "I learnt how to better support someone with mental health"
