The Safe Space project aims to develop and pilot a new approach to supporting young people to overcome their mental health issues and to develop healthier habits and behaviours. Through a bespoke peer leadership programme, the project team will support local youth leaders to become advocates of positive mental health among their peers. The chances of success for any proposed intervention can be significantly increased if the positive mental health message is delivered by a credible voice from within the youth community. The aim of the Safe Space project is to design and produce a full suite of educational resources that will support prevention and early intervention activities on a local level. These resources will focus on understanding what causes and affects ill mental health, what protective and risk factors can determine a young person’s mental health and how young people can support their peers with local mental health promotion campaign.
