Even the best of us experience mental health difficulties.
At YMCA North Staffordshire, we proudly support the end of stigma faced by many, and change the way people think and act about mental health.
The latest research conducted by YMCA England & Wales reveals that 77% of young people have felt lonelier and more isolated during the lockdown, 73% feel more stressed, and more than half (56%) are worried about falling behind at school: Back on Track Report.
In these trying times, we encourage all to Be Kind and Keep Talking. Prioritising mental health has never been more critical than it is now. And sometimes, it can be challenging to know where to begin. Whether you want to take the first strides towards getting some help or learn more about helping those around you, we have compiled some information, support and online communities that will get you started.
