Change Together is a PBHA and VC Hackney-led project to raise mental health awareness in Hackney and Islington, through conversations with members of the public at local events. Volunteer Amy shares her experiences so far.
I think the best thing has been bringing people together to a safe and vibrant space where they can have meaningful experiences and conversations relating to mental health.
Creating natural environments for these to happen has meant that the shared thought and feelings have all been very genuine. And often quite in-depth.
This is very moving to me – relating to one another as fellow humans.
Also the training was in-depth an interesting and the experience so far has been varied and fun!
