POSTCODE LOTTERY FUNDING TO PROVIDE MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
Cetma is pleased to announce that it has received £2000 from the People’s Postcode Community Grant to help provide mental health support for Llanelli’s 16+ males.
YPMHS or Young people’s mental health support project will target young people in Llanelli and provide them with advice, guidance, support, a friendly ear and refer them if needed to other organisations for more support.
“We will have volunteers trained specifically in Counselling Children and
Adolescents Course who will be able to provide some support to the area’s youngsters. We already have a Group set up for People suffering from Stress, Anxiety and Depression called the Llanelli Don’t Panic Group.” Said Jonathan Williams CETMA MD
“We’re organising a Geekly Weekly ‘Saturday of Champions’ on Saturday 14th April as way to engage with a younger audience and we are setting up a Football team to help combat mental health problems and fight stigma for 16 to 25 year olds. We have to try out different ways to engage with the youngsters.”
The grant will be used to promote the help, advice and guidance, training up volunteers to help and working with a youth partnership to tackle bigger issues.
For the Geekly Weekly ‘Saturday of Champions’
The team will start training on Monday April 9th at Penygaer Playing Fields at 6pm. If anyone would like to join or volunteer on the team then please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit
