Tayside young people to benefit from The Corner Wellbeing Boxes

Over 1000 wellbeing boxes have been created to help young people struggling with mental and emotional health distress during lockdown.

The Corner Wellbeing Boxes contain items such as a stress ball, mindfulness colouring book and various leaflets to use if people are feeling upset or anxious, to help them relax and to promote positive mental health and self-care.

Health improvement officer at The Corner, Rhea Long said, “We have seen an increasing amount of young people accessing our services due to mental and emotional health concerns since lockdown began last March. We understand that young people are increasingly worried about their future, but we hope these boxes will offer some support when people need it. 

“We spoke to local young people to ask them what they would like the box to contain. Funding came from a generous donation from a local family following the tragic death of their son and from the Hillcrest Covid-19 fund and Dundee Young Carers.”

The Corner offers one-to-one support and counselling services to all young people aged 11-19 years old as well as vulnerable people up to age of 25.
