Space2 Leeds, Open Minds: co-produced school resources

The Open Minds Project in Leeds has created some incredible co-produced work with school-aged pupils that we are delighted to share with you.

The programme involved:

  • Training groups of young people to become mental health champions including an introductory workshop  focusing on mental health awareness, stigma and campaigning

  • Collaboration with a local artist to design and produce creative campaign resources

  • Access to a range of resources for use in assemblies, PSHE lessons etc.

  • Input and support from volunteers with lived experience of mental health problems and campaigning

  • Support in using digital and offline versions of ‘MindMaze’ – a game designed and developed by young people to encourage open conversation about mental health.

Here are some examples of the creative campaigns settings worked on:
