Staff from State Street worked with some of ThinkForward’s young people at Swanlea School in East London to record a podcast on issues surrounding mental health.
They discussed the prevalence of mental health difficulties in different groups, what mental health issues can look like, and the various social factors that contribute to the mental health landscape in the modern age.
Young people learnt about what is involved in producing a podcast, including all the work behind the scenes preparing for the moment when they finally hit the record button.
The result is an incredibly thoughtful, articulate and insightful look into one of the most pressing health issues facing our society.
ThinkForward’s coach Ash said he was also proud of the two hosts of the podcast who spoke in front of their entire year group in an assembly to promote the project. “Even I was a little nervous so for them to be calm, clear and confident enough to do it, much kudos to them.”
