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
Hangman, pub quizzes, debates
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.
