The Cheltenham Town Community Trust are now over half-way through the academic year and their delivery of their award winning MenTalk and GirlTalk workshops.
They have been able to engage a number of new schools who they have not worked with in previous years, growing relationships and CTFC’s reputation throughout the county.
The workshops cover crucial aspects of both mental and physical health both tailored to young men and women including:
• Mental Health Awareness
• Positive Mental Attitude
• Stress, Anxiety, Self-Harm
• Online Awareness & Money Management
• Body Image
• Alcohol and Drugs
• Safe Sex & Relationships
• Testicular/Breast self-examination
They have received very positive feedback this year, as demonstrated by the following statement from the Head of Physical Education at Maidenhill School in Stonehouse:
“These topics and areas were delivered professionally, sensitively and with humour which made the key messages, advice and guidance accessible to the students within the sessions.
"The students were able to trust the coaches delivering the sessions, Alex in particular, and this enabled the sessions to be productive and of value.
"I would highly recommend the MenTalk programme to other secondary schools and would like to thank Alex Parker and Cheltenham Town FC for giving us the opportunity to be involved and attend our school to deliver the programme.”
Also this year the MenTalk and GirlTalk workshops received award winning recognition, highlighting the impact they have on the town of Cheltenham.
'The No Child Left Behind' awards recognised the workshop and the Trust’s work in promoting good mental health to children across Cheltenham in their first ever awards ceremony in a big event at the Town Hall.
Overall it has been a great year so far for the MenTalk and GirlTalk workshops and as always the Community Trust coaches are so pleased to be able to go out and help all young people within the community, and spread these important messages which become just as potent in the current uncertain times we are all facing.
