Mind Matters - National Health Service

Mind Matters aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people aged 14-25 living across Torfaen and Blaenau Gwent. 

The Mind Matters project recruits, trains and supports young volunteers to deliver peer led workshops on mental health in youth settings across the area by working with CAMHS, Primary Mental Health and Public Health Wales. 

The judges especially liked this project as it was youth led, where young people identified the need for information, advice and guidance around mental health issues. They then deliver workshops on highlighted issues meeting the needs of a wider network of young people.
