MENTAL HEALTH: Virtually Minded Project - support for young men

Address details
Organisation Sutton Coldfield YMCA
Address

Our #VirtuallyMinded Project is all about raising awareness of male mental health particularly in teenagers and young men.

Mental health problems in young adults are worryingly common, especially depression, anxiety and misuse of alcohol and other drugs.

Shockingly, for young men aged 15 -24, suicide is the leading cause of death. The stigma attached to mental health problems often deter young people, especially men, from seeking help.

The Virtually Minded Project aims to change perceptions, raise awareness and get young men talking about mental health using the power of comic book art and social media.

We have developed a 5 week programme which is designed to help young men aged 11 – 19 years old increase their confidence and self-esteem, participate in social action and become more proactive in their community.
