Feeling Good Week
Published: 25 April 2018
Grants available for promoting positive mental health to young people
Did you know mental health problems like depression and anxiety affect around one in ten children and young people in Surrey? That's why Feeling Good Week is returning to promote positive mental health among children and young people. This year it will take place from 18 – 22 June and the theme is 'Building resilience', to help prepare young people for some of the challenges of modern life.
Will you support Feeling Good Week?
Organisations that work with children and young people up to 18 years old such as schools and youth groups can apply for a grant funded by Surrey County Council and Surrey Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). This is to put towards the cost of Feeling Good Week activities and resources that can help young people get and keep the feel good factor. The grant can be used to fund various activities, including yoga and meditation classes to buy resources, or plan a visit from an inspirational speaker – all promoting mental health and wellbeing. If you want to get involved in Feeling Good Week and want to find out how schools and organisations can apply for a grant, visit Surrey's Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services CAMHS website.
