we are feeling strong:
We exist to make sure that every young person in Dundee who has experienced a mental health 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.
What's happening on social?
The Make Your Mark project aims to foster confidence, develop skills and increase aspirations in young people who have mental health challenges. Young people ages 12-17 will be able to take part in one of three streams over the 10 week programme, either Creative, Enterprise or Sports. In the Creative stream an artwork portfolio or piece will be created, the Enterprise stream will develop a prototype service or product alongside a pitch and finally the Sports stream will participate in local activities and create a reflective diary on the experiences.
