We’ve just signed up to Natasha Devon’s brilliant initiative, the Mental Health Media Charter. Launched in 2017, it is a set of seven guidelines for reporting and talking about mental health in the media and online. You can read the guidelines in full here – they’re not just good standards for the media, but for anyone talking about mental health. Signing up to the charter...
Make (Good) Trouble is a social enterprise, set up in reaction to the growing problems young people are facing – there is a mental health crisis that is showing no sign of going away. It is a crisis that is particularly affecting girls – one in four has depression before they are 14.
Make (Good) Trouble brings local teenagers together to create
and produce audio and video content that is distributed through schools, colleges, online and on social media. Teens share their stories in a positive, creative and safe environment to gain an understanding of issues that affect their mental health such as device addiction, self harm and negative body image. They learn skills in production, animation and music. They build relationships and work with expert adult mentors. We are determined to make positive change.
