That’s Me! – Introducing our young people’s mental health project

Leave a Comment

Today, Big Hearts announce the return of That’s Me! with weekly wellbeing sessions for teenagers and young adults starting from Thursday 2nd September.  

That’s me! aims to support young people aged 12 to 18 who need some extra support in dealing with transitions into adult life. The project is designed around the young person’s needs, with individual guidance provided on various challenges which can include drug and alcohol misuse, sexual health, relationships, return to school, anxiety or bullying.

The project was set up by Big Hearts late in 2019, with the support from Tiny Changes, to fill a gap in mental health support services for young people aged 12+ and particularly those attending our Kinship Care After School Club.

After a successful pilot period, with over 25 individuals benefiting from one-to-one advice and group activities so far, our charity is delighted to be welcoming new referrals to join the project from September 2021.

That’s me! is funded by The City of Edinburgh Council via their Children and young people mental health fund, the Mental Health Foundation, the National Lottery Community Fund and the RS Macdonald Trust.
