Jigsaw “RALLYing Around Young People” – Supporting Young People’s Mental Health (Online February 2023)

Jigsaw is a youth mental health charity which offers a range of mental health supports and services to both young people (aged 12-25 years) and those around them in the settings where they live, learn, work and play.
The Jigsaw Youth Mental Health Promotion team for FET and Higher Education aims to increase the mental health knowledge, skills, and resources of young people, and those around them across FET and higher education settings.

Jigsaw’s interactive “RALLYing around Young People” workshop follows on from Jigsaw’s session in October 2022 called “An Introduction to Jigsaw’s Youth Mental Health Promotion Team for FET Settings”.
*However, please note that attendance at October’s session is not a requirement for this session*
The R.A.L.L.Y approach is a way of helping One Good Adults to support a young person whose mental health is being challenged or at risk of being challenged.

At the end of the “RALLYing around Young People” workshop, participants will:
• Have a greater understanding of mental health and what influences people’s mental health
• Explore the concept of ‘One Good Adult’
• Know how to use the RALLY approach to support young people’s mental health
• Recognise what helps and blocks us from accessing support for mental health
*Note that while Jigsaw focuses on supporting the mental health of young people aged between 12-25, the strategies and approaches from this workshop can be applied to all age groups*

The target audience for this session is: FET staff including management, teachers, tutors, trainers, programme coordinators, guidance counsellors, learning support staff and wellbeing officers.

Facilitation: This session will be facilitated by Carrie Budds. Carrie is Youth Mental Health Coordinator with Jigsaw, working in the FET and Higher Education team. She has worked in health and wellbeing for the last 8+ years and is qualified in health promotion, specialising in workplace settings.
