Assembly screens films made to mark World Mental Health Day

The films, which were made as part of the project 'Connections' was funded through the EU's Erasmus+ programme and involved young people working with MLAs and mental health agencies.


Let's Talk events in your area

Are you aged 16-18 or know someone who is? Do you want to put your questions to local politicians? Why not come to a “Let’s Talk” event near you?

The Education Service is organising these events with local schools to give first time voters in the next elections the opportunity to ask questions which they feel are relevant to them. Students of all subject areas will find this event useful. The panel discussion will be hosted by journalist and political commentator Paul McFadden.

We want your views on mental health services!
