Centre 33 – ‘Dignity’ walk

Centre 33 is celebrating the launch of their free and confidential drop-in counselling services for young people in Huntingdon and St Neots and marking World Mental Health day by hosting a day of activities including a walk from St Neots Farmers Market to Huntingdon Youth Centre.

The theme for World Mental Health day 2015 is Dignity and our focus for the day will be what this means to young people. If you are interested in getting involved and sharing what Dignity means to you:
Share your words, pictures, poems, lyrics either on a piece of paper no larger than A4 or via
• Twitter using #Centre33Hunts, @Centre33Camb,
• or by email [email protected],
• on the day in person at the Market Square St Neots (10:30), Paxton Pitts Visitors Centre (12:30), St Benedict’s Court Huntingdon (2-4pm), or HYC (5pm)

Vir2oso, a local youth arts group are celebrating their first birthday on the same day and will be helping Centre 33 to kick off their creative journey at St Neots Farmer’s Market. From there we will be walking and talking to people along part of the Ouse Valley Way, and inviting them to share why Dignity and young people’s mental health matter to them. We will finish at HYC between 5-7pm with a celebration of everyone’s contributions.

Sam Feeney, Mental Health and Counselling Project Worker at Centre 33 says “When you fail to treat young people with dignity, especially when they need help or support, it can often lead to self-blame, low confidence and self-esteem, withdrawal and social isolation. At Centre 33 we can now offer to young people in Hunts, someone to talk to in confidence where your dignity will be respected, building on our experience of supporting young people in Cambridge for more than 30 years.”
