One way to have a direct impact on your own sense of well-being is to volunteer to work with other people.

Shawmind deliver a range of mental health awareness sessions specifically for young people, this is an opportunity to support conversations about mental health while providing sign-posting to local services. Shawmind sessions are not therapeutic but rather provide a space to address loneliness and isolation with time to talk to others.
