we are feeling strong:

We exist to make sure that every young person in Dundee who has experienced a mental health or wellbeing challenge is supported to reach their full potential. We do this by delivering services in the community that are designed by young people, delivered by young people, for the benefit of young people.

Our approach is to tackle the systemic and structural barriers which can stop young people accessing positive opportunities, and support them on their recovery journey.

Happy Birthday Feeling Strong!

We were absolutely overwhelmed by the amazing support shown for our first Birthday Party - an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of everyone involved this year. The event was a fantastic celebration of our community's commitment to work towards better youth mental health and wellbeing in Dundee. Thank you all our guests, partners, trustees, volunteers, staff and most importantly our young people who made the night one to remember! 💜💪

Feeling strong gains living wage accreditation!

We strongly believe that even start-ups like ourselves have an obligation to pay their staff fairly. Due to our work we also recognise the link between poverty and poor mental health, which is why we're thrilled to gain Living Wage Accreditation! We always paid it, but now we can demonstrate our ongoing commitment to treating our incredible staff with fairness, dignity and respect.

First Birthday Fundraiser!

BIG NEWS! It's our 1st birthday on the 2nd of April!

To celebrate we're launching our first donations drive, asking that people spare what they can to support Feeling Strong in the run up to our big day! Please like and share - can we hit £500? Donate here.
