Gloucester’s Sherborne Cinema trailers On Your Mind

Gloucester’s Sherborne Cinema will be showing a short film aimed at helping young people to find out what help and support is available locally and nationally when things get tough before the screening of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’ next week.

On Your Mind is a new website (www.onyourmindglos.nhs.uk) for young people aged 12 – 18 in Gloucestershire to help them cope with life’s ups and downs.

It includes information on local sources of support for young people about any issues they may be facing, such as anxiety, eating issues, anger and bullying as well as links to useful websites and national helplines.

The website was developed with input from young people in the county, some of whom have personal experience of mental health problems. They helped develop the artwork and explained what kind of information they would find helpful.

A few of the young people produced a video. This is being shown at Sherborne Cinema this week before the showings of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Dr Jeremy Welch, Clinical Lead for Children and Young at NHS Gloucestershire CCG said:

“Young people in Gloucestershire told us they often find it difficult to talk about their mental health. They worry that people will judge them and treat them differently.

So we are looking at new and innovative ways to encourage young people to talk about how they are feeling, and hope the On Your Mind website and video will help them feel able to do this.

We are grateful to Sherborne Cinema for playing the film, and hope that viewers may find it helpful, either for themselves or perhaps for one of their friends.”
