Our aim is to support youth organisations to develop a health improvement focus.
We offer a wide variety of training opportunities such as Scottish Mental Health First Aid, Emotional Literacy Practice & Principles, Healthy Young Lives, Under Pressure, Sexual Health, FGM, Alcoho, Drugs & Tobacco, New Psychoactive Substances and First Aid. Our training is available to staff and volunteers working with children and young people in the local community. Please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or check our facebook page for more information.
The work we do supports the Single Outcome Agreement for Glasgow as well as our own NHS GG&C Strategic Direction, this means our work comes under three distinct themes;
Mental Wellbeing & Resilience.
Structurally & Socially Resilient Communities.
Child & Young Person Mental Health
Through our work with the North East Child & Youth Mental Health Working Group we have developed some resources to support staff to signpost children and young people experiencing mild mental health issues.
The Resilience Toolkit - This toolkit can be used within your organisation to increase staff and young person knowledge and understanding around resilience.
The Referral Pathway - Provides information on organisations able to offer support to young people with mild mental health & emotional wellbeing issues.
The Training Pathway - A support for managers and staff/volunteers to review training needs around mental health and wellbeing training as part of ongoing workforce development.
Aye Mind is on a mission to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people – by making better use of the internet, social media and mobile technologies. We are working with young people aged 13 to 21 to create and share a wide range of resources. We’re also making a digital toolkit for all who work with young people too, to boost their ability to promote youth wellbeing.
The project is a partnership between Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS, Snook, the Mental Health Foundation and Young Scot, with a wide range of local partners involved too. Aye Mind is a "work in progress", so check back often for new stuff!
We also support the Weigh To Go Service
A service for young people (aged 12 - 18) who are overweight and want to lose or manage their weight. See www.yhs-ng.co.uk for more info. Weight to go currently runs in Easterhouse, Shettleston & Springburn Health Centres.
