Regional Workshops

The Feel Happy Fix Live 2015, supported by Simplyhealth, will draw on the personal mental health experiences of young people from across the UK, bringing them together to determine practical solutions to make our communities happier.

 

Throughout February 2015, more than two hundred 16 to 25-year-olds gathered at sixteen different locations to participate in regional workshops.

 

Here, they began to identify the key points of concern for young people with mental health conditions, suggesting ways to tackle these problems.

 

Their ideas will feed into a larger event taking place in central London on Wednesday 11th March.
