Let’s talk Mental Health: first Tea & Talk a success!
Last Thursday we held our first Tea & Talk event – the aim was to provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere for young people to freely and openly discuss important issues like mental health. Enticed by free tea, coffee and hot chocolate we had 14 attending in total, which we consider a success for our first event of this kind.
We were fortunate to have Caroline from The Corner to provide a local perspective and to give us some facts about mental health. Jack Brady, MSYP for Dundee West, ran a brief workshop on the Scottish Youth Parliament’s current campaign Speak Your Mind, which aims to raise the awareness of young people’s mental health.
