Help us to help our local young people with their mental health.
With GCSE exams fast approaching, our young people are under more pressure than ever. In a busy, frantic and ever-connected world where mental health in young people is on the rise, it is more important than ever to do our little bit to help them manage their exam stress and pressures, as stress only stays stress for so long, before it pre-disposes the brain to depressive episodes and anxiety.
In my private practice in Magor Square, i'm seeing more young people with mental health conditions. It seems the pressure they are under with upcoming exams is ridiculous. I'm deeply concerned about the number of young people with severe anxiety and depressive episodes as a result of untreated, sky high stress levels. Holly Turner - Owner of wellbeing Studio.
Our community group "Womens Wellbeing" (a local group that come together to engage in self-care in Redwick village hall) want to do our little bit to help the young people take good care of their mental health during this time, using the self-care techniques we've been using for our own wellbeing.
We want to put together "self-care" bags that contain:
- A hand-written letter of encouragement and re-assurance.
- Breathing techniques
- Guided mediations
- Aromatherapy sniff sticks (blended by a clinical aromatherapist, using sedative and calming essential oils for them to inhale)
- Information and further resources on who to call if they feel suicidal or like they want to self-harm.
The money raised would help us to purchase the bags, the essential oils and sniff sticks, the cost of printing and chocolate. We would like to put the bags together and give them out to as many young people as we can. The more money we raise, maybe the more young people could help.
All accounts will be made public.
