Upcoming events and programmes
Mental Health Discussions
We are hosting a series of workshops to facilitate a safe space for mental health discussions, and encourage young Black people to talk more openly and honestly about how they feel.
'Let’s Talk', continues with a roundtable discussion, which is sponsored by Globe in partnership with Gilead.
Our next discussion focuses on Black excellence. We will be looking at what this means and exploring possible impact - positive/negative, on mental health. This discussion will be facilitated by JUT’s youth mentors, a mental health practitioner and members from GLOBE.
