The cover of the "Well being" booklet.

Well-being – young people and mental health

Area Meeting at Staunton on 9 June 2017 received the following  minute from the Link Group

On 6th May 2017, four young people with supporting adults met at Painswick Meeting House to think about Mental health, a topic chosen at our last Link Group Meeting.  Co-operative juggling in the garden confirmed the way we would work together during the day.

We talked about Mental Health problems which may lead to an illness or disorder. We drew pictures and took photographs to illustrate a booklet called ‘Well being – how to look after my Mental health and how I can support my friends’

Walking across the valley to the Quaker Burial ground we ‘Time travelled’ in story, to the site of the original Quaker Meeting House.

We made collages of Our Feelings, which we shared in Epilogue with our families.

A copy of the booklet “Well-being – how to look after my mental health and how I can support my friends” have been sent to all young people in Area Meeting and to each local meeting. Mary Penny (01453 860262) has further copies if you need them.
