If you are thinking about attending Discovery College and also have an interest in improving mental health support for young people, this is the group for you. It’s an opportunity to meet others, play games, share food and chat. There will be a discussion at each session to evaluate the courses on offer and develop new ones, and share thoughts about the services on offer to young people that support emotional wellbeing.

This group has already managed to achieve changes to services and create films for use in schools. They have created help booklets for young people accessing CAMHS and have been the driving force behind creating a Discovery College in this area.
