The students on university courses at Burnley College organised 'The Feel Good Fun Festival' as part of their Asset Based Community Development module on the Foundation Entry - Community and Social Care: Policy and Practice course.
The festival, which was aimed at those aged 16 to 19, featured a range of activities that promoted positive mental health and well-being, including:
Festival make up, nail painting, hand massages and pampering.
Craft and Chat sessions where students decorated delicious cakes while enjoying coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
Diagnose Disney - The area focused on Disney characters, specifically princesses, who could all be diagnosed with a mental health problem, to help students recognise the mental health issues.
The event also featured a raffle, with prizes donated by the community, which raised £131 for mental health charity Lancashire Mind, who also supported the event.
The students are approaching the end of their academic year, with many progressing on to degrees in Social Work, Children, Young People and their Services or Children, Schools and Families.
