Diverse Cymru would like to hear from young people from black and ethnic minority communities who are willing to talk about their experience of serious mental illness.

They are looking for young people to take part in a digital storytelling project where they can express opinions on their illness, their triggers, what’s helped them, what changes they have made to their lives, how the people reacted when they were unwell and how they are treated now.

The digital stories workshops will be held in Cardiff on Wednesday February 22nd and Thursday February 23rd from 10.00am-3.00pm. If you are interested in taking part please contact: johngilheaney@hafal.org
