We want to send a great big thank you to everyone who has supported the Brighton5 Crowdfunder to raise vital funds for Brighton5’s next project, which is to work with teens and local schools and colleges to tackle mental health issues. We’d also like to pick your brains! Launching a Crowdfunder has been a huge learning curve! It sometimes feels like we’re looking after a newborn...
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 is bringing local teenagers together to create
and produce video content that will be distributed through schools and colleges. Teens will 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 will learn skills in production, animation and music. They will build relationships and work with expert adult mentors. We are determined to make positive change.
