We hope by creating the Mental Health Passport, young people will feel more in control of their own information and don’t have to keep repeating themselves. Please spread the word and check out the MyMHP website: https://buff.ly/32opzT4
For the last few years STAMP have planned, facilitated and evaluated their own consultation event, YOUth MATTER. Young people aged 14-25 are invited to creatively share their views on topics that are important to young people. So far we have consulted on: mental health and services in Sheffield, our manifesto for mental health, tips for friends and family, social media and much more! After each event a report is written up and shared with services to influence change. See the last few years reports here…2018 https://buff.ly/2WjvYer
