#IAM Youth Panel

Our #IAM Youth Board is about young girls encouraging, inspiring and empowering other young girls. Our Board is made up of volunteers aged 14-19. Our volunteers are passionate about mental health and the well-being of other young people. They are shaping campaigns, creating merchandising and assisting in creating our Inspire Magazine. Our volunteers are also given the opportunity to train and qualify as Mental Health First Aid Ambassadors. Our project aims to encourage and help other young people with their mental health & well-being, enabling safer and stronger communities. We give young people the opportunities to gain good transferable skills, life  skills, build  a  network of  useful connections & gain  improved  mental  health & well-being.
