‘Young People working together to ‘Create the Change’
We are delighted to share the link to the ‘Create the Change’ song which includes powerful messages for young people to reflect on and consider positive steps towards emotional wellbeing.
The idea for the song originated from the Unlocking Potential project in The St Lawrence’s Academy (TSLA) with four students who wanted to raise awareness of emotional wellbeing and mental health.
The development of ‘Create the Change’, which was led by TSLA and supported by the North Lincolnshire Youth Council (NLYC), has been a really collaborative project and showcases the innovation and talent of local young people and the power of working together to develop positive messages in a creative way.
The premise for the song was built around the positive steps within the NLYC ‘Positive Steps to Emotional Wellbeing Leaflet’. Music and lyrics were developed by young people at TSLA and finalised by members of the NLYC Positive Steps Working Group, which is a group of young people dedicated to raising awareness of positive emotional wellbeing and mental health.
