HOPE - Peterborough & Cambridgeshire Children and Young People’s Video on Mental Health

The Peterborough and Cambridgeshire Children in Care Councils have created a short, powerful film to help destigmatise mental health issues and signpost young people to available support.

“It’s normal to go through mental health struggles as a young person. We've created this animated poem to show young people that they're not alone and where they can go to for help.”

They took inspiration from this quote from Desmund Tutu: “Hope is knowing there is light despite all the darkness.”

Click on the image below to watch the film on YouTube and share it with your friends! If you would like to get involved with the Children in Care Council, please get in touch.

 If you’d like to get involved, share ideas or feedback we’re available from Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm. Call or text or email.
