Milton Keynes’ You, Me, Together arts and wellbeing project wins Creative Learning Guild Performing Arts & Music Award
Date Created: 12th Mar 2019
We are very happy to share the good news that the You, Me, Together project, based in Milton Keynes, has been awarded a Performing Arts & Music Award from the Creative Learning Guild.
The project engaged with 150 children and young people across four Milton Keynes schools, in order to gain a better understanding of how they perceive ideas around mental health and wellbeing.
Muriel Scott, Director of Public Health at MK Council said: “To learn more about how young people and children understand mental health and wellbeing, we needed to ask the experts –the young people themselves. This project not only helped schools engage with what mental health and wellbeing is and why it’s so important to talk about it, but it also gave us a great insight into how young people perceive it and express it. I’m incredibly proud of how well the project worked and I’m confident it’ll help us to help the young people and children in MK.”
