Be Kind to My Mind film launched

Bolton Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services are promoting their new campaign Bekindtomymind. As part of the campaign, service users have created a film which aims to promote truth and honesty about what it is like to walk in the shoes of someone current experiencing difficulties which impact on their emotional wellbeing.

In keeping with the anti stigma roots, Bolton CAMHS Bekindtomymind film helps provide insight and education to young people, adults, professionals and school staff in order to better understand what some young people are managing. The young people actively took part on screen and behind the camera, (a lot of the video footage seen was shot by young people). The service hopes that the film with be used in school alongside a training package in the future.

The campaign which is co-produced with young people and Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group has been embraced by all services across Bolton who provide excellent help for young people who are experiencing emotional and psychological difficulties.  The next step is for the creation of a micro site where young people and parents can access information on local services available to improve young people’s mental health. If you live or work in Bolton, look out for the advertisements, coming soon!
