Last week, our Youth in Mind team had the pleasure of supporting the Madhlo Youth Zone with their 5 Weeks to Wellbeing Event. Mahdlo has been running a 5 week event where each week is about one aspect of the 5 ways to wellbeing. During the “Keep Learning” week, the Youth in Mind team ran 3 events on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings where they held a number of different workshops, debates, and group tasks to establish the myths and facts on mental health and where to get support if needed.
Throughout the 3 nights at Mahdlo, we managed to engage with over 120 children and young people!
The feedback that we received from the Mahdlo staff, children, and young people who took part was fantastic!
Mahdlo would now like to continue and improve our partnership by doing joint events at least 4 times per year and they would like to try for funding so that we can help support children and young people’s courses from Mahdlo as well!
