Healthier Minds, East Renfrewshire’s guide to promote the mental wellbeing of our children and young people.
Our aim is to help staff and parents find the information you need to develop children and young people’s talents and abilities in a way that will support them to meet life’s common challenges, develop their resilience, and have healthier minds as a result.
To explore the impact of poverty in local communities, Glasgow City HSCP South Health Improvement Team, Plantation Productions, The Gal Gael Trust and Oxfam Scotland worked in partnership with the young people at Create Crew to deliver a youth-led participatory action research project. The result of the project was a youth-led documentary film “Poverty: Our Hidden Shame?” which was short-listed at BAFTA for the AHRC Inspiration Award 2016.
To support the film a resource pack has since been developed by adapting sessions from the Health Issues in the Community training programme. The new resource encourages learners to explore further some of the issues raised in the film such as: what is poverty, who’s in poverty, beliefs about poverty, poverty and understanding inequality by using participative exercises, group discussions and digital approaches.
