Two Haverfordwest Youth Forum members recently held a Well-Being Night at Pembrokeshire Archives for twelve girls who attend Haverfordwest Youth Club.
Briony Bennett and Sophie Price delivered a presentation on the ‘five ways to well-being’ discussing how young people can incorporate the five ways (connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give) into their daily lives in order to improve their own well-being.
In addition, the girls took part in activities that will help them de-stress and feel good, such as Nail Art, Face Masks, Art/Drawing and they all made healthy fruit kebabs.
The girls also invited a substance misuse worker from Choices who raised awareness on substance misuse.
Sophie and Briony, both aged 15 said:
“We really enjoyed organising a well-being night for the younger girls who attend Youth Club and hope they now know the importance of looking after their well-being.”
Steve Lewis, Community Youth Worker added:
“Sophie and Briony deserve huge praise for planning and delivering a session which enabled the girls who attend Youth Club to enjoy a safe environment to discuss mental health with their peers, Youth Workers and professionals.”
The evening was funded by Pembrokeshire Youth Bank’s Welsh Government-funded youth-led grant scheme under the Prosperity for All strategy.
