Talk Listen Change talk Mental Health & spreading awareness to Youth! Interview w/ The New Talent Academy
Helen Stuart and Brad O’Donoghue from Talk Listen Change join the New Talent Academy
to talk about the charitable work of their organisation and the advantages of spreading awareness
on mental health to the youth.
Talk Listen Change works with locals in Salford, they aim to provide counselling and help
to everyone who seeks their services.
TLC aim to make young people aware of mental health and ways to improve it,
before it can affect them in severe ways. Talk Listen Change states that awareness
may not stopping mental health issues from happening, however can help give young
people the skills and knowledge to know how to deal with it better in the future.
“Prevention is better than intervation” said Brad.
If someone is already going through issues in their life and mental health, TLC believes
that through both talking and listening a real change can be made to those suffering from
mental health issues, a normality that now sees 1/5 people affected in some way every year.
During the interview with the New Talent Academy they also provide advice to
those who might be in the position of providing support to someone who is currently
suffering through mental health issues themselves. They highlight that people need to keep
up meaningful connections to try to expand a healthy social circle.
