This podcast was recorded by Thomas and Casey, two care experienced young people who talk openly about the subject of mental health.
The podcast was co-produced with TRIUMPH as part of 439 Champion’s Board, Who Cares? Scotland, the University of Edinburgh and the Institute for Innovation and Research in Social Services’ (IRISS) project ‘Mental Health and Care Experienced Children and Young People: A partnership for change’. The project seeks to improve understanding and practice in relation to care experienced young people’s mental health.
The project has developed a training workshop aimed at students and professionals in residential child care, social care and social work, which is being piloted at this week’s European Social Research Council’s Festival of Social Sciences in conjunction with the British Association of Social Work.
