Our Youth Service has continued to expand and we now have drop in groups in Llandrindod and Builth high schools open to students ages 16 and over.

We continue to run 2 weekly youth groups on Mondays and Thursdays at 6:30pm, both of which are currently online. 

Below you can see a poem written by Hannah who attends the groups:

Mind’s Young People’s 16/25 Youth Group

Why did I say yes?

What if they don’t like me?

Treat me like the people who bullied me.

My hands are shaking, knees quaking 

Then the tears start.

A thousand worries at once

This is all too much.

Brainless, I press the zoom link

Numb in mind, body and soul.

Only to be greeted with smiles

Two ladies who look after me,

People who treat me normally 

We talk about techniques 

Play games,

Hangman, pub quizzes, debates

Learning positivity.

The more I go, more my smile grows

Every week I now see friends, for a day feel my age

No longer a tear to roll down my face.

By Hannah
