42nd Street has a number of projects that look to help young people connect, campaign and create. You can find our current groups on our What's On page, and read about some of our recent projects below.
We Tell You
A Manchester peer research group, We Tell You, based at mental health charity 42’nd Street, and supported by Manchester Metropolitan University, has authored a new research report and manifesto on black male perspectives towards mental health services. The goal is to improve understand and improve access to support.
- Co-produced with 27 young black men.
- Access the full report, manifesto and press release below.
Funded by Comic Relief and delivered in partnership with Sagita Media, Survivors Manchester and TIPP, Film 42 is a project which empowers young Black men to explore mental health through filmmaking. The films our young men have created will form part of an upcoming campaign which seeks to change the way that young Black men access services for support with their mental health and in turn, how these services ensure they have the best possible experience. Our young men will act as Ambassadors for the Film 42 project, so you can expect to see and hear from them over the coming months.
If you’d like to find out more information about the project or would like to support the campaign, please email Reece.Williams@42ndstreet.org.uk
