Young Devon holds monthly hub groups for young people aged 11-19 in Newton Abbot, Exeter & Barnstaple to discuss various topics around mental health. These groups are an opportunity for you to meet with others and discuss how mental health is viewed. At the groups you can have your say about mental health within your community; sharing your thoughts, opinions and reflecting on how the community can best promote positive mental health and support other young people. You can become involved in giving your opinion on how mental health is viewed in schools by students and teachers, creating ways to help other young people and making improvements to mental health services.
We have created a group which should be a safe space to speak openly about your experiences, so you have a chance as a group to discuss topics around mental health, looking at coping strategies and most importantly having fun! The sessions are very interactive where all young people play a part and support each other.
We discuss issues, looks at positive strategies and tools, play games, eat pizza, and look at how we can have a positive influence on Mental health in our community.
