GB launches new Culture Check-Up vlog for #MHAW18

16 May 2018

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (see more here), GB England & Wales has launched a new Culture Check-Up vlog inspiring leaders to continue to engage with the issue of mental health.

As MHAW is focussing on stress, the film also features the voices of a number of young women who attended the Esther Generation Weekend 2018 sharing some of the stresses that many of their peer group experience. Chloe Twist, 18, from 26th Liverpool GB group and Jessie Emms, 21, from 1st Northallerton GB group reveal how GB has helped them to be resilient and look after their emotional well-being.

Advocacy Co-ordinator Dr Claire Rush explains ‘We hope that our Culture Check-Up vlogs will help GB leaders and parents understand and engage with recent research about girls, culture and faith in the UK and equip us to become even more effective as we seek to turn up the volume of hope for girls.’

This is the first of a series of vlogs which aims to help leaders unpack key statistics on issues facing girls in the UK and ends with a few simple suggestions about how we can practically help to inspire hope in the next generation of girls.

The film can be viewed online here or below or shared with your local or regional leadership team as part of your ongoing commitment to equip yourself.

Why don’t you share GB’s Culture Check-Up vlog on mental health on your social media and help GB invest in leaders, parents and wider church members?
