TFY supports Childrens Mental Health Week

08 Feb 2016

Together For You offer a range of services for young people.

Together For You offers a number of education programmes for schools, and other youth settings, aimed at raising awareness of mental health, and encouraging early intervention.

Judith Blair, a teacher at Belfast Boy's Model, has recently availed of some of these services for her Year 8 class.  This is what she said:

"The school has availed of services from Aware, AMH MensSana, Nexus and The Rainbow Project. AMH workshops have complemented the existing anti-bullying structure within our school. It has been particularly useful to have instense support with every Year 8 class. Nexus workshops have added a unique perspective to the sensitive issue of online safety and grooming – an area which is difficult for some teachers to deliver.

"Having this service available to schools is essential – all pupils deserve to have access to sources of information, support available and the opportunity to have those discussions regarding anti-bullying/mental health/online saftey/homophobia."

"The service has been fantastic and delievered by professional staff who are obviously experts in their field. This is difficult for schools to deliver due to sensitive subject areas, eg depression, LGBT issues and grooming."
