Growing2gether in the Community Youth Led Community Project creates mural at Charleston Academy

Students from Charleston Academy, 2 male and 1 female, aged, 14-15 were mentored by Mikey’s Line. After meeting with staff at Mikey’s Line, the group were inspired to create a mural exploring the subject of mental health for their school grounds.  The school was highly cooperative and supportive and they were given permission to do this. After sending out a google survey to their peers to discover what makes them happy and what makes them sad, they ‘hired’ the services of a fellow pupil and artist to work with them on the design which they painted as group over a weekend. The completed mural will now act as a mental health resource that will signpost young people who have concerns or questions about mental health issues to organisations such as Mikey’s Line who can provide support.  Well done to everyone involved!!
