Friend in Need Project Officer

Are you passionate about helping secondary school age children to have the knowledge they need to support a friend who is struggling with their mental health?

Youthwatch are looking for young people to get involved with Friend in Need.

The project is an online resource, offering secondary school age children information, conversation starters and hints and tips if they’re concerned a friend is struggling with things like self harm, anxiety and depression.

You could be part of our research team, help to write articles or do some proof reading.

We’re even looking for help to get the resource out to the public, and to do work on our website.
