The Cheltenham Town Community Trust have been celebrating being named winners of the #GoodMentalHealth category at the 2020 No Child Left Behind Awards.
The Community Trust’s MenTalk and GirlTalk project saw the Trust recognised for the work they are doing around the town in support of mental health for secondary school students.
In an event held at Cheltenham Town Hall on Thursday 30 January, the MenTalk and GirlTalk project was chosen as the winner by the judges for its work on supporting young people with mental health awareness, positive mental attitude, stress and anxiety.
The project also focuses on self-harm, safe sex, body image, online awareness and a number of other areas.
Simon Perruzza, Chief Executive Officer of the Community Trust said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award and I am so proud of everyone connected with both the MENtalk and GIRLtalk mental health awareness projects.
“We have been working in and around mental health awareness for a number of years and completely understand and are totally committed to the value of mental health awareness and general wellbeing for everyone.
“This award is a testament to the tremendous hard work the team have dedicated over the past seven years.”
Paul Stephenson from Cheltenham Borough Homes presented the award to the Community Trust on stage.
First team defender Will Boyle and Cheltenham Town Ladies Sammy Morris also attended the awards to present the #PhysicallyActive award.
