Event description

Description

Wellbeing is an important topic in adolescence as three young people in every classroom experience mental health problems. DECIPHer, a research centre at Cardiff University, want to know what young people think about mental health and the research that is being conducted into young people’s mental health. Therefore we will be holding a free screening of the film ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’. Following the screening young people are invited to take part in discussions with researchers about mental health research.

This event has been co-organised and will be co-facilitated by young people from ALPHA, DECIPHer’s advisory group of young people. To find out more about ALPHA see our film at: https://youtu.be/SRf1jSDwig8 #everyone’sawallflower.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

1 - TRIGGER WARNING: Please note this film contains scenes about mental health, drug use, abuse, suicide, and self-harm which some young people may find upsetting. Due to this only young people aged 15 and over and who are accompanied by a teacher, youth worker or other DBS checked individuals can attend. An adult can bring as many young people as they deem appropriate.

2 - Accompanying adults will be expected to gather consent for young people to attend as DECIPHer will not be collecting consent information.

3 - Unfortunately due to the start time of the event we will not be able to offer parking at the event, so those travelling by car or minIbus will be expected to park their vehicle in the street in a non-residential parking area.

4 - We will be offering food at the event at arrival (4:00pm) and during a break after the film (about 6:30pm). Therefore when obtaining tickets we require dietary/allergy information.
