‘Provoking Thought’ workshops are available to 11-25 year olds and their key contacts and can be delivered in schools, youth clubs and community groups. (Can be delivered to 25+ also)
The aim of the workshop is to support young people/people and their key contacts in the area of mental and emotional wellbeing through a range of activities that are tailored to suit group needs. The workshops aim to be young people friendly, positive, interactive and informative. The workshops are designed to explore issues and facilitate discussion around issues of mental and emotional wellbeing.
A mental health awareness Provoking Thought workshop can include information on the following:
There is also scope within the Provoking Thought workshops, time permitting, to incorporate additional information that teachers, youth leaders or community workers would like covered should there be particular issues that are relevant to that group. For example, a workshop can be designed specifically about bullying or to have part of the workshop to cover mental health awareness and bullying. AMH MensSana staff will endeavour to cover all issues that teaching staff, youth leaders and community workers feel would benefit the mental health and wellbeing of the young people or groups under their care or that they are targeting and to highlight that early intervention is crucial as is knowledge of appropriate support should problems arise.
