Challenge

In Manchester, the long-term impact of the Coronavirus crisis on young people's mental health has been highlighted as a major concern amongst parents and carers. Physical activity, including football, can play an important role in improving the mental health and well-being of young people. Benefits include improved mood, better sleep, managing stress and anxiety, improved self-esteem and connecting with other people.

Solution

In Manchester, City in the Community will support young people in their recovery by embedding mental health awareness and understanding across all community projects targeting thousands of participants aged 14-25 years old. Young Leaders will also play an active role in supporting the delivery of the curriculum in schools and community events, as well as providing a peer-to-peer support network for participants of a similar age.

Long-Term Impact

Increased mental well-being and emotional regulation knowledge and skills. Sustained and habitual physical activity increase. A dedicated team will develop a mental health curriculum while project staff will be trained to have the knowledge they need to identify and refer participants to expert NHS clinical support. Evidenced research published demonstrating the significant treatment effect on children/young people's mental well-being indicators and physical activity.
