The young people’s team at York Mind has a wonderful offer for young men living in and around York!
York Mind said:
The aim of the projects is to get young males and young people representing as male talking about their thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams, and futures!
A conversation through the medium of art or sport and yes, the subject matter is SUICIDE but contrary to popular belief, talking about suicide doesn’t encourage or lead someone to take action; rather, it reduces the risk.
The UK can no longer afford suicide to be a taboo and we need to hold a space in time for difficult conversations with the people we love and care about. Giving time for young males to discuss and learn about themselves and others will in turn give them and those around them a better future! It could save lives. Learning that ‘we are not our thoughts’ early on in life, could save years and decades of pain!
So, we need your help …
Are you working with a young person who would like to attend such a project?
Are you working with a family who have young males aged between 11 and 16 years, who would like to attend?
Perhaps you have family or friends who have young males who would like to attend either or both groups?
Then all I ask is for you to open a conversation and spread the word!
This offering is awesome, we have some great local businesses on board who believe in the project! York Mind and the local businesses want this to work for the young males of York!
