The 1757 Voices Schools Charter *Launch Event*
18 Mar
The Southend Youth Council is delighted to announce that on Monday 25th March, we will be holding a Launch Event following the success and completion of our ‘1757 Voices’ Mental Health and Emotional Well-being Charter. At the Southend Youth Council we have been working on introducing our Charter (a copy of which can be found on this link) with an aim to promote having healthier, more Mental Health-friendly schools where pupil well-being is highly valued. It is our pleasure to invite you to attend our launch event, which will be held in the Chamber at The Hive, Victoria Avenue from 5pm -6pm. At the event, we’ll give more background to what we’ve achieved and expand upon the importance and value of better Mental Health support for young people. We will be joined by guest speakers and we will have a taster ‘relaxation & well-being’ session to give everyone an experience of the different kinds of Mental Health support. There will also be an opportunity for local schools and organisations to sign up to our Charter and to meet the team behind the project. *Due to venue restrictions we would appreciate if everyone attending could book via the Eventbrite link below: Please let us know if you are able to attend or have any questions and we look forward to seeing you there. Kind regards, Marco Mann - Southend Youth Mayor, Amy Burdett - Southend Deputy Youth Mayor and the Mental Health Campaign Committee Email:
