Earthwise Project – mental health awareness & stigma video

ImageWe wanted to share with you a video made by young people who attended our Earthwise Project, a partnership project between Circle of Life Rediscovery and the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) – young poeple attended a number of Youth Leadership trainings in the Outdoors where we shared our experiences, made fire, played games and created a fun and safe space to be together.  Its seems that when we are outdoors, its  a welcoming space where people can be who they are, and feel they belong.  This video was made by young people for young people about raising the awareness of mental health issues and what you can do about this.  They wanted it to get out to as many people as possible to spread thier message – to ask people to challenge stigma and prejudice and for us all to know that whilst we may have issues, we also have our gifts & strengths. Hope you enjoy it.
