Do you regularly work or volunteer with young people’s community groups in Bristol? Do you want to know more about how mental health stigma affects the lives of young people?

We’re pleased to be running our free Challenging Mental Health Stigma workshop with a special focus on young people’s experiences on Tuesday 4th October 2016 at Phoenix Social Enterprise from 4.30 – 7pm (5pm start). This workshop will run alongside the Freedom of Mind Festival which focuses on the mental health of young people in Bristol.

What we will cover

  • What is mental health stigma? How does it affect the lives of young people?
  • How is stigma perpetuated? What kind of messages are sent by the media and other institutions?
  • What can we do to challenge stigma ourselves and to help young people challenge it too?

To book your place, please visit our Eventbrite page. A sandwich buffet will be provided and there will be time after the workshop for discussion.

Location: Phoenix Social Enterprise, Russell Town Avenue, Bristol, BS5 9LT
