Young People Cornwall Good Neighbour Funding

Provident Good Neighbour funding is supporting a ‘Heads Up’ programme which aims to help and enable young people to understand how to develop their emotional resilience and deal with the issues that life throws at them.  Many don’t know what a mental illness is e.g. stress, OCD, depression, self-harm or what to do about it. After piloting the awareness sessions in five areas, our funding has allowed them to expand this by employing a member of staff to support the training of professionals to deliver the workshops. This includes teachers, youth and support workers.
