Youth Mental Health Hub: Sharing Practice & Showcasing Event: (Ulster)

September 12 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm IST

DESCRIPTION

The NYCI National Youth Health Programme would like to introduce & invite you to participate in the NYCI Youth Mental Health Hub, which is coming to an area near you soon.

Research, from across the island, indicates an increase in mental health issues for young people, for example, emotional disorders such as anxiety. Many organisations in the youth work and health promotion fields have developed responses and produced resources to raise awareness about and lessen the impact of poor mental health on young people.

The NYCI Youth Mental Health Hub has been established to provide youth organisations with an opportunity to share and showcase youth mental health promotion projects they facilitate with their young people. In addition to this, the Hub will act as a networking opportunity for youth organisations.

The first event will take place in Omagh, covering the Ulster Region on September 12th
