I am… Space2 and Thorpe Primary School Project

Walk up the road to Thorpe Primary School and you’d be forgiven for thinking you were approaching the edge of the world – a hop, skip and jump from the school gates is the thundering, shuddering roar of the motorway. Once inside the lovely old redbrick school, though, the deep hum of engines is replaced by the wonderful high-pitched chatter of children, coming and going through the open library that sits in the centre of the building. It’s in here – and across the adjacent classrooms and hallways – that Space2 with 5 artists and 3 final year dance students from Leeds City College have come to set up camp with the children to make, create, dance and sing; to shout to the rest of the world about this little-known corner of West Yorkshire.

The ‘I Am’ project has been set up to help give the children at Thorpe a creative voice, a voice that tells its stories in all sorts of different ways. There are shoeboxes packed with memories and tales, dances and poems swapping words and movement across the corridors, bird boxes to fill the surrounding trees with chatter and songs to annoy the much-loved caretaker! And all of this noise, these words, movements and colour, all start with the phrase “I am” and will be celebrated with an exhibition across the school and 2 performance in March.

I am me, I am here, we are Thorpe Primary School. Expect this collective ‘I Am’ to be louder than the roar of the traffic, louder than the caretaker’s bellow, loud enough to be heard from Wakefield to Leeds!

People in Leeds are coming together to change how we think and act about mental health

Leeds is one of the first Time to Change hubs in England, a new partnership of local organisations and mental health champions committed to improving local attitudes and behaviours towards people experiencing mental health problems.

Time to Change Leeds is led by the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Board and is a partnership between Space2,  Leeds City Council,  Leeds Mind (and Mindful Employer), Touchstone and West Yorkshire Police, as well as local Time to Change champions and regional co-ordinators.

Champions

The Time to Change Leeds Hub believe that people with their own experience of mental health problems (also known as lived experience) should be leading activity around combating stigma and discrimination experienced by those with mental health problems.

If you are passionate about ending mental health stigma, and would like to be involved in the Hub, you can find out more and sign up to be a Champion at www.time-to-change.org.uk/champions

Champions Fund

World Mental Health Day  the Champions Fund was launched. Champions in Leeds will be able to apply for up to £500 to fund anti-stigma activities in their own communities using social contact. Find out what social contact is?.

Want to apply for the Champion Fund but need some help with ideas?

Open Minds Project

Promoting knowledge and openness about mental health in schools and youth groups through campaigns co-produced by young people.

1 in 10 young people will experience a mental health problem and 90% of those young people will experience stigma and discrimination, either indirectly or through bullying.  Stigma stops young people seeking help; it stops them living normal lives, and sometimes it makes them give up on their hopes and dreams.

It doesn’t have to be this way.  We want young people who experience any mental health problems to receive support and understanding from those around them. We want all young people to grow up knowing that it’s ok to talk about mental health.

Participation in the Open Minds Project will give you a variety of options (depending on availability):

·        Training for a group of young people to become mental health champions including a introductory workshop  focusing on mental health awareness, stigma and campaigning

·        Collaboration with a local artist to design and produce  creative campaign resources

·        Access to a range of resources for use in assemblies, PSHE lessons etc.

·        Input and support from volunteers with lived experience of mental health problems and campaigning

·        Support in using digital and offline versions of ‘MindMaze’ – a game designed and developed by young people to encourage open conversation about mental health.

What is the expected commitment from school or youth setting?

·        A nominated lead member of staff to liaise with the Open Minds project Manager to co-ordinate and support activity

·        Recruitment and co-ordination of a group of young people (5 – 15) to become mental health ambassadors and develop the campaign. We believe it works best with Year 9 and above

·        Support in gaining evaluation and feedback from a range of young people and staff.

Please contact nicolae@space2.org.uk for more details.

Promoting knowledge and openness about mental health in schools and youth groups through campaigns co-produced by young people on schools and youth settings.

1 in 10 young people will experience a mental health problem and 90% of those young people will experience stigma and discrimination, either indirectly or through bullying.  Stigma stops young people seeking help; it stops them living normal lives, and sometimes it makes them give up on their hopes and dreams.

The Open Minds Project trains young people to become mental health champions. The project will include workshops focusing on mental health awareness, stigma and campaigning with input and support from volunteers who have lived experience of mental health problems and campaigning. The group would also be supported in using digital and offline versions of ‘MindMaze’ – a game designed and developed by young people to encourage open conversation about mental health.

The young people can work with a local artist to produce a creative campaign resource to promote the key messages of the project. Here are a few examples of the work that has been co created.

Allerton Grange School created an installation based on the theme of islands sited in a popular area of school to create a relaxed environment for conversations about mental health.

Abbey Grange planned and delivered assemblies for the whole school including personal testimonies from students who had volunteered to share their experience of health problems.

Carr Manor created a drama piece that focused on the impact of stigmatising language and the benefits of holding simple, relaxed conversations about mental health which was performed to the whole school.

Middleton Youth Service (South Leeds Youth Hub) commissioned flyers to distribute amongst their peers using photographs they created on the theme of listening and being a good friend.

If you would like more information or to book the Open Minds Project to be delivered in your school or youth setting please contact nicolae@space2.org.uk or paulb@space2.org.uk

Men FM

“Men Visible” is the name of the podcast and CD made as part of our “MenFM” project, funded by the Tudor Trust.

Making men visible is exactly what we want to do. We want to encourage men to take charge of their own health, to take part in activities and to find inspiration and encouragement in the company of others.

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside the Seacroft

What happens when one young adventurer with a magic suitcase gets on a bus bound for the seaside and ends up in… Seacroft?  Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland have nothing on our hero’s night-time tour of the wild, weird and wonderful folks of East Leeds. Space2 are back with another all-singing, all-dancing, all-falling-about-laughing show, this time set in the ginnels and parks of Seacroft.

‘Oh I Do Like To be Beside the Seacroft’ is an adventure set across one strange night, written by Boff Whalley using stories and histories collected from the folk of Seacroft by Jane Morland. It will be performed and sung by a cast previously hiding their talents around the streets, shops and schools of the area. With live band, dancers, and no doubt a suitably irreverent audience, here’s a musical fairy-tale bringing Leeds to life.
