About this course

Some young people are more at risk of experiencing health problems, and less likely to be able to access the health support they need because of the barriers they face. This introductory course explores how marginalisation and barriers can affect young people and their experience of mental health services, and how participation can help improve both.

 

The workshop will run 10am – 1:30pm with a break.
