Inspired to make a change

YOUNG people from around Warrington attended a workshop designed to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

Humanutopia – who have inspired more than 300,000 young people to make a positive change in their lives – ran the course at Priestley College.

As well as Priestley students taking part there were sessions for pupils from Broomfields Junior School, Penketh South and Great Sankey primary schools.

“Ensuring our students are supported and feel happy in themselves is a priority at Priestley,” said Senior Tutor Tracie Ryan.

“Working in partnership with Humanutopia gave us a great opportunity to share their expertise with some of the local schools and hopefully it has made a real difference. Certainly all the students were fully involved and took advantage of the opportunity.”

Humanutopia’s life-changing courses are proven to boost academic performance and leave a lasting impact.

They are aimed at improving mental health and wellbeing by empowering those who take part to make positive changes in their life.

Another of their goals is to develop life skills making individuals more employable.

“We hope to work with Humanutopia again in the future to give even more young people access to this kind of opportunity,” said Tracie.
