From Platfform. By Young People. For Mental Health.
We’re really excited to be able to announce the launch of Platfform’s website and resources for young people: Platfform 4YP.
Platfform 4YP is a new brand from Platfform aimed at young people, and includes the brilliant work already being done by our Young People’s team and the fab State of Mind project.
The new Platfform 4YP website (platfform4yp.org) has been created by young people, for young people. It offers tips for what can help when you are struggling, information on how and where to get help, ways to feel empowered and how to build resilience during difficult times.
The site’s articles, covering everything from gaming to meditation and beyond, are all written by young people aged 14-25, and carry their own voices. There is also a full suite of supporting social media from Platfform 4YP.
platfform4yp.org is edited by Tom Evans, a prominent young mental health activist, photographer and winner of Youth Work Excellence Awards. He’ll be working alongside a fantastic team of young editors and content creators.
Please follow @platfform4yp on social media and help share far and wide through your networks.
We’ll let the rest come from our team of young people – in their own words.
