Empowerment groups for young people, by young people

Are you in Year 9 or above? Are you passionate about mental health? Are there issues in your school you would like to see addressed? If so, the #IAM empowerment groups may be the place for you! Inspire Cheshire are offering the chance to have your voice heard and shape the way your school addresses the issues that matter most to young people. Liaising with our Inspire Engergiser, each group would meet on a monthly basis to discuss and review the changes they would like to see – and how to make them happen.
