Poetry/Photography – Young Black Adults Mental Health Workshop

Saturday 19th March

Come along to the Ameina centre in Luton for a free workshop to express share, and discuss Black mental health through fun activities.


This March we will be hosting a free workshop for young Black men and women (18-25). The workshop will be a safe space to express, share and discuss mental health amongst peers. Activities include poetry, creative writing, photography and more.

There will also be refreshments available to anyone who attends with the opportunity for your creations to be shared as part of our campaign to help make mental health an open book in the Black community by reducing stigma and starting more conversations.

This event is run by Change:BMH working in partnership with UK Youth, The Diana Award, Centre for Mental Health and the Ameina Centre, as part of the Young Changemakers programme.

The Diana Award:

Throughout all of our programmes and initiatives ‘change’ for and by young people is central. Our Anti-Bullying work encourages change in attitudes and behaviours for young people by young people, our Mentoring schemes guide change for some of the UK’s most vulnerable young people and our flagship Award and Development programme recognises the young people driving selfless change across the world, supporting them to go even further. In 2021 we will launch our newest initiative, ‘Changemakers’ which aims to change the inequalities in mental health experienced by young people from racialised communities.
