Mind! The Gap - About The Campaign

MIND The Gap Logo.jpg

Members of both YCW and Impact groups have expressed their deep concerns about the current help available to young people with mental health problems as well as the stigma attached to mental health problems specifically in schools and colleges and work places.

At this point of the campaign we want to look at this issue much more deeply and find out the opinions and experiences of our friends and colleagues.

We hope you enjoy the first stage of the campaign and we look forward to hearing and sharing the results of the enquiries and questionnaires. Please remember to send back all your results to YCW HQ through email or post. The more experiences we hear from you, the more fruitful we will all find the next stages of our campaign.

An action campaign brings together all members of YCW and Impact! to address a topic of current interest and relevance to the lives of young people. It is a process of study, reflection and action which helps us to realise that we have a great deal to offer to others and power within us to change things for the better.

An Action Campaign is carried out on a national basis so that we can as a Movement join together, along with our friends and contacts, to make a difference on a wider scale.

The campaign follows the See – Judge – Act approach which every YCW and Impact group uses at their regular meetings, just on a wider scale.
