Young RTMinds is our area of support for young people struggling with mental health. This is not like other online resources, it won’t just be another page of information - this is a friendly face to reach out to, real people with real stories to share, an online community of support to turn to as you guide yourself towards recovery. This is a new project for us, and soon this page will be filled with support and guidance, blogs, personal stories, but also art, poetry, and all things creative. We hope in the near future this will grow into an online community that you will be able to join, be a part of and benefit from, but until then if you need help please reach out to us.
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, please reach out. Don’t keep it to yourself. It can get better, and it will get better sooner if you ask for help. You do not need to know anything about art, craft or be creative at all. The first thing to do is to pick up the phone, or send an email, or message us on Facebook. We can help. If you are already receiving professional support, from mental health services or a GP, ask your support worker to refer you to RTProjects.
