Mental-Health in a New Direction project!
Here are two examples of recent podcasts we produced around helping to tackle mental health issues in a positive and inclusive way to highlight ‘new directions’ using music by North Coast DJ Darran Wallace. The project aims to embrace personal issues through peer education and support by creating a network of participants and producers.
We have recently applied to Coca Cola Ireland for funding to produce a series of new works which helps cover the spectrum of mental health issues facing young people on the North Antrim coast and beyond…fingers crossed.. we will keep you posted!
