National Citisenship Service
Our project is based on Mental Health in which we worked with charities such as MhIST to create this video. Our aim is to raise awareness that mental health cannot be clearly seen physically and advertise the support people can get. The statistics provided throughout were gathered by the charity. This was created as part of the NCS programme in partnership with Bolton Lads and Girls Club. Watch their excellent work on Youtube
