Your Mental Health is Important

We've created our first animation to illustrate this point

What is the OYC?

We are a group of democratically elected young people who represent the young people of Oldham. We have up to 70 members who are aged 11 – 21 and live, go to school or work in Oldham.

What do we do?

We help Oldham’s young people have their say. We work with loads of different services and organisations to make sure that young people are able to shape and influence decisions that affect our lives.

DRAG AND DROP

–Promote opportunities for young people from across Oldham
–Raise the profile of young people
–Represent Oldham young people locally, regionally and nationally
–Campaigns on issues that effect the lives of young people.

MENTAL HEALTH

With current restrictions Mental Health of young people is a concern for everyone.

With young people telling us, year on year, that mental health is one of the top issues young people face we have made our priority for 2020.  

We have collated resources to help young people in these strange times.  Some are COVID related, some for your specific circumstance and some jut general help for everyone. 

If you need help please do not wait to look for it.
