Posted on Updated on

Tough Times Reference Group

The young people’s Tough Times Reference Group works for Calderdale Council on the emotional health and wellbeing (EHWB) agenda. During lockdown they have been working with services across Calderdale on producing this  Children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing services poster.

Their intention is for every young person and their families to know about the different services, not only by name, but also what each service specialises in, to ensure young people receive the support that best fits their emotional health and wellbeing needs.

Open Minds CalderdaleWorry Cards on Returning to Education – created by young people for young people
Recently, 16 young people came together to create 14 flash cards for students returning to education. The purpose of these cards are to help decrease stress levels surrounding any worries or queries that students might have. These top worries have been selected as the most frequent worries that students said they would face on returning to education last September.
