LUNCH & LEARN - Advantage Mentoring: Supporting Young Peoples' Mental Health

No prior booking is required for this event. 


This session is suitable for all staff and volunteers across the North East and North Cumbria health and care system. If you have any queries about your eligibility to attend, please get in touch.



Boost, in collaboration with North Cumbria Knowledge and Library Services, are planning a series of Lunch and Learns. These are 30 minute, virtual, informal sessions that take place at lunchtime - while you take a break and eat, you can listen to our invited speaker give a short talk sharing their experience of improvement work. The session is then open to anyone who has questions or reflections to offer.

Join us for this Lunch and Learn to hear from Emma-Jayne Green (Regional Project Manager - North, Advantage Mentoring CIC) on 'Advantage Mentoring: Supporting Young Peoples' Mental Health'.

Advantage is a unique partnership between two ‘community assets’ and ‘anchor institutions’ – the charitable arms of professional football clubs (known as Club Community Organisations (CCOs)), and their local NHS Trusts.

The programme has been designed by senior NHS strategists and CCO staff to increase access to NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), and help tackle waiting times and reduce health inequalities by providing weekly 1-2-1 mentoring support for young people aged 14-21.
