First ever European Youth Mental Health Event!

I Feel, You Feel!

About this event

Introducing I Feel, You Feel! The first ever event of its kind celebrating and raising awareness of mental health with and for young people. This event will celebrate World Mental Health Day every year – this year on the 9th instead of 10th so we can hopefully get more people in schools and professionals working to get young people to atten. In the future we hope that this event will become a face-to-face event and will happen every year going forward.
