Within our Emotional support group for young people we have developed with young people a mental health first aid kit. This is a bag of resources that young people can use to help reduce anxiety. The kits have been developed and reviewed with young people which has led to some changes and further development.
Within the kits are such resources as stress ball, journal, inspirational postcards, and photos of loved ones or family animals, pens, mindful colouring book along with emergency contact details such as NSPCC, Samaritans young minds and others.
How will you use the money?
The funding would be used to purchase resources and bags for the young people to put their kits together
