LifeLine’s SW!TCH Lives workshops are designed to improve the mental health of young people in schools by combining the expertise of LifeLine in improving the wellbeing of young people with UK rapper Nick Brewer’s expertise working in the creative industries.
Nick is the author of the poem Talk About It and an ambassador for Anxiety UK. He uses this platform to share the message that having anxiety is not something to be ashamed of, but is something that we need to be able to talk about, and support each other in.
We currently have a mental health crisis in the UK:
- In the last four years, Childline have reported a 36% increase in calls
- The NHS have reported a 68% increase in girls being admitted for self-harm
- Suicide is the biggest killer of males under the age of 45
LifeLine, along with Nick Brewer, are addressing this crisis by bringing a message of hope and encouraging young people in schools to talk about it.
