Dundee's Youth Mental Health Charity 💜💪
We exist to make sure that every young person aged 8-26 in Dundee who has experienced a mental health or wellbeing challenge is supported to reach their full potential. We deliver projects, services and campaigns in the community to tackle stigma, build confidence, develop resources, create networks and most importantly support the positive recovery journey of our young people.
Feeling Strong would like to invite a young writer to host a workshop with our young people in response to Eco Anxiety to create a piece of collaborative writing.
This is a paid opportunity!

As we approach our fifth birthday we’ve asked ourselves who we want to be three, five, and even ten years from now, and what we have to do to make our ambitions a reality. Our vision is to create a Dundee filled with connections and a strong safety net for young people who all too often slip through the cracks. If we work together, we can make the transformational change that our young people so desperately need. We invite you to check out our new strategy here and please share your thoughts with us, we would love to hear them!
A-Z OF MENTAL HEALTH
We here at Feeling Strong have been working hard to bring you our latest online resource, our A-Z of mental health! We have designed a glossary of mental health terminology designed and delivered by young people with the focus of sharing personal experiences.

Adopting one of our seagulls will give a huge boost to our work, and allow us to keep the seagulls and young people happy, healthy and full of chips.
When you choose to adopt one of our seagulls you'll get a digital welcome pack, certificate and regular updates on your seagull's shenanigans - you can even get a limited edition t-shirt! We hope that you choose to help some of our seagulls for the benefit of Dundee's young people.
