Feedback on Youth in Mind

Mighty Minds

Worry jars were my favourite activity because it was very fun, and I think it has really helped me at home.

When my worker came to see me, I was unsure, but it has been the best thing ever, having someone just for me.

Know Your Mind

People who don’t know me just don’t understand but you have, right from the beginning.
