Cool Down Cafe - Young People's mental wellbeing


Cool Down Café is a new open access space for young people to help explore their mental health and wellbeing. Supported by fantastic Peer Mentors from Hackney CVS, Youth workers from Pembury and Psychologists from Young Hackney, Cool Down Café is a great space for young people to:

  • come along and chat
  • get direct access to psychologists
  • find out more about opportunities for ongoing support in Hackney

The peer mentors are motivated to break down the stigma of mental health and barriers to support. Over the next few months sessions will be focusing on a book "The Journey To The Undefeated Minds’ written by Yolanda Lear one of the peer mentors. It’s an incredibly positive and powerful message written by a young person and is being used as a tool to support other young people.
Please spread the word to all 11-18 year olds you know that might benefits from the Cafe and sessions.  More information on Instagram @COOLDOWNCAFE2020 the link to the sessions is in the bio.
