A voice and a choice for our mental health

Right Here on the BBC!

bbc This Sunday 2nd November, tune in to BBC1 at 11am to catch a story featuring YMCA DLG Right Here Brighton and Hove project.

Right Here Mental Health Promotion Coordinator Rose Allett and two volunteers from the team, Nichola and Anthony, were filmed and interviewed by the BBC for the Sunday Politics Show (South East). The show will highlight ways the local NHS, Council and voluntary sector are tacking mental health issues in Brighton and Hove, especially in relation to young people and self-harm.

Head of Public Health Tom Scanlon will be interviewed live in the studio, and local GP and mental health lead Dr Becky Jarvis was interviewed about our city’s new mental health and happiness strategy.


Representing the voluntary sector, Rose and the Right Here volunteers were filmed delivering one of their ‘Five ways to wellbeing’ workshops to beauty students at City College, then interviewed about Right Here’s 2013 award-winning research into the perceptions of self-harm, their hugely popular mini support guide called Talking About Self Harm, and about the much-needed Self Harm Awareness workshops that Right Here is offering to 13-25 year olds around the city.

So set yourself a reminder for Sunday morning, or watch this space for the iPlayer link next week!
