YMCA Partnership for World Mental Health Day

Delivering workshops to young people in three YMCA locations across Northern Ireland.


As part of World Mental Health Day in October 2018 Change Your Mind partnered with Inspire’s floating support team and three YMCA’s (Newcastle, Lisburn and North Down) to deliver workshops on Change Your Mind’s ASK, LISTEN, TALK guidance and mental resilience and anti-stigma to over 40 young people.

Inspire’s counsellor Amanda Hughes focused in areas including emotional awareness, flexible thinking, empathy, self-efficacy and connecting and reaching out as well as highlight the impact of stigma on people who have a mental illness.

We hope to roll this sessions out to other community groups. For more information on our work with communities click here
