What's on Your Mind 2019

Posted by See Me, 18 July 2019

Under 26 or work with young people who are? Come and join us to find out what young people have been doing across Scotland to end mental health stigma and discrimination. 

On Tuesday September 3rd See Me are really excited to be holding ‘What’s on Your Mind 2019’.

If you are under 26, or work with young people who are, then you can register your interest to attend this free one day learning exchange, at The Arches, in Glasgow.

The event follows on from last year’s Year of Young People, and our own Feels FM campaign, which used music to start thousands of conversations on mental health.

At the event there will be music, food, discussions on mental health, and a chance to find out what young people, schools and youth organisations across the country have been doing to end mental health stigma and discrimination.

As part of the event we also have sessions specifically designed for senior leaders who work within the children and young people’s sector to share their learning and experiences.

If you’re interested, then you can register your interest hereand we will get back to you to confirm your place.

When: The event will take place on Tuesday 3rd September 2019, 10:00-14:00.

Where: The Arches, 253 Argyle St, Glasgow G2 8DL

ANYTHING ELSE?

We want to hear from you (if you’re under 26 and in Scotland) on what you think would really make a difference, so young people wouldn’t worry about being judged, or dismissed or treated differently if they told someone they were struggling with their mental health.

We’re looking for short videos, no longer than two and a half minutes, where you can share your ideas on how we can tackle stigma and discrimination, and support young people to be treated fairly when they’re having a tough time with their mental health.

What you put in the video is up to you, it could be anything from a GIF, to a song, to an animation, or just you chatting about why this is important.

The best, most creative videos and ideas will be shown at our What’s on Your Mind 2019 shared learning event in Glasgow, where the winner will be voted for, and we will work with you to make it happen.

Send us a link to your video and a contact email or number to info@seemescotland.org by August 26th.

WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

We're also looking for Posters Abstracts to display at the event to show the work that is happening around the country to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination for young people.

If you've been doing work towards this, whether it is complete or on going, then we'd love for you to submit a poster abstract.

The abstracts should be around 300 words in total. To display yours please complete this form and return it to info@seemescotland.org by 5pm on August 26th. 

Successful applicants will be notified by email after that.

There will be prizes awarded for the best posters at the event, in two categories, Youth Led, and Organisation Led.

Posters must be displayed in portrait form, and A0 in size and arrive at the venue by 9am on September 3rd.
