Several organisations have requested copies to use in their outreach work, after spotting the potential of our Fixers posters.
East Kent College (3,000 students) is using them in their Youth HQ. They are also being used by a National Citizen Service coordinator at a youth club in Crewe, Cheshire, and by Catch22 in their youth club.
Our Fixers posters and message have also spread to Scotland, where they are being used at drop-in youth services in Leith, Edinburgh.
The charity Fast Forward, based in Edinburgh, also plan to use the posters. Simon Atkins, Peer Education Network and Communications Officer of Fast Forward, says they could be seen by at least 150 people.
He adds: “We think the poster communicates a really important message about mental health among young people, helps raise awareness and shows them where to go for help. It also looks great!”
We launched our poster at East Kent College’s Broadstairs campus on Wednesday 25th June as part of EKC Fest.
We set up a stand to display our poster and were able to chat to those attending the event about our campaign.
We received some positive feedback as people were keen to hear about our proactive approach. We now hope we’ll be able to get the poster displayed in places like doctors’ surgeries and libraries.
