Aged 11 to 18? We are recruiting new members to the Youth Panel now!
Hi! We have designed 'A Piece of Mind' to share ideas and activities that support us mentally. There is no wrong way to do anything here - we hope you find these activities to be relaxing, inspiring and creative. Have some fun trying things out!
This video (and this project) was designed with the support of artists (our friends) Hilary Cox Condron and Sally Todd.
Every single care package that we distribute will include a pair of wireless bluetooth headphones. We know that in busy, sometimes over-crowded families getting a bit of silence and some mental space is the hardest thing of all.
We know that the gift of some peace and quiet is something priceless for every recipient.
If you've received one of our boxes (or even if you haven't!) and you've got a great idea about something that helps young people to achieve a sense of peace and calm - why not share it? Use the link below to find us on Twitter and use #pieceofmind for your suggestion!
No matter how low you might feel - or what you might be struggling with - there are a range of people to help you. It is essential that you reach out to seek help.
If you need honest and plain speaking advice on drugs or alcohol - Talk to Frank is an independent and reliable source of information. Did you know that daily drug counselling and Q&A is available www.talktofrank.com 2PM until 6PM - it is FREE and ANONYMOUS.
Call 0300 1236600 to speak to someone, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Ruth Sapsed is a Director of the Cambridge Curiosity & Imagination charitable organisation - and she is a dear friend to us. Her support to young people across the region has made this initiative possible.
Fullscope is a collection of charitable bodies in our region who combine their efforts to improve the mental health and well-being of children and young people across our region. The support of Fullscope has been essential to the delivery of this offer.
The funding partner that made all of this possible is the Evelyn Trust. The Evelyn Trust is a grant-making charity that supports medical research and health and wellbeing projects in Cambridgeshire. This amazing body has granted more than £18.4 million to 254 different projects in our region.
