YOUNG PEOPLE: MORE THAN A SCOREFRI 4TH OCT BROOKS BUILDING, MMU, 533 BONSALL STREET, HULME, MANCHESTER, M15 6GX
Presented with Greater Manchester Living Youth Charter and Manchester Metropolitan University.
Whether in our own lives of those around us, dealing with the ups and downs of life, or serious mental illness, we all confront issues with mental health. We rarely have the opportunity to discuss these matters openly, and mental illness still has a huge stigma attached to it. Within our communities, there are many who can offer profound insight into the challenges of mental health, either through personal or professional experience.
Living Library gave participants an opportunity to meet young people with unique, often challenging stories, and others who work with them. Visitors of the Living Library had 15 minutes for frank and open conversation, to listen, ask questions and reflect.
