Sheffield Focus on Their Youth

Wed, 16/11/2016

PIR supported (or provided) Kentish Family Support House with funding to support the needs of local young people.  The project involved a community event in Sheffield to raise awareness and provide education to the community on youth mental health.  Nathan Hulls spoke to grade 7-10 students and staff at the Sheffield School about the importance of good mental health, motivation and self-esteem.  The project also involved teachers and community members being trained in Teen Mental Health First Aid and grade 9 students undertook Youth Mental Health First Aid training.  PIR was also able to support the Kentish Family Support House Coordinator to be trained as a facilitator of Teen Mental Health First Aid – an investment in the Kentish community’s future.
