Event description

Description

Future in Mind are a group of Young People who work together to make mental health services in the city better.

We are putting on this free event to offer an opportunity to hear about the project, to see inspirational speakers and to shape the future of mental health services.

The event is open to all young people aged 12-25

There is a free lunch from 12:30pm and the main event will start at 1:30pm.

The event will feature speakers and workshops on transition (moving to adult services) and PSHE (learning about mental health in schools)

Our keynote speaker is Paul McGregor, mental health speaker, advocate and writer as featured on BBC, Sky News, Huffington Post, Vogue and GQ

The event finishes at 5pm.

We want to make sure that everyone can come to the event:

- The building is wheelchair accessible
- we can accommodate dietary needs (or even just make sure that we have food that you like).
- There is access to a quiet space throughout the day
- We are happy for young people to come with someone who supports them
- We can arrange for young people to have reserved seat near the exit during workshops and speakers
- We are happy to arrange for people to visit the building with a couple of members of the group before attending so that they know what to expect on the day.
- printed materials can be made available in other formats on request.
- If travel is a barrier for people attending then we may be able to help out on request.
- If there are any other ways that we can make it easier for you to attend the event then just let us know on dynamiteportsmouth@gmail.com
