Creative Minds

Champions Development Day

On Saturday 8th September we brought our Creative Minds hubs together, YMCA Swansea, Andrew Kent Music Academy, Georgetown Youth Club and Pentalk Lab Newport. We held the event at a fantastic night club Warehouse 54 in Newport- of course no alcohol was served! The venue was fantastic with funky areas over 3 floors including an open air terrace, and yes it stayed dry!

The day started off with young people doing activities around perceptions of mental health, we discussed how comfortable we are being honest about mental health in society- which is easier to admit- I had to go to the doctors or I had to go and see mental health professional, there were some really interesting points and a lot of difference of opinion but everyone was respectful and supportive of each other which was amazing to see!
