YMCA Mental Health Tootlkit

Whilst working as a support worker at the North London YMCA, I recognised that staff were struggling to understand and support the mental health needs of their clients. Based on this insight, I teamed up with MIND to provide mental health training for all staff and created a mental health toolkit which helps staff identify key symptoms and signposts them to local services. We also created opportunities for residents to connect with tailored mental health activities and discussions.
