On Sunday 3rd of January 2021, 31 young people between the ages of 11 to 15 years from Noor Al Asr Youth Group participated in the Let’s Talk Well-Being Workshop run by CoEJ. The workshop was facilitated by Sr. Ridhae Sheikh and Br. Danial Naqvi.
The objectives of this course were to:
1. Improve awareness and understanding of wellbeing
2. Recognising signs of stress and understand how to tackle it
3. Promote a culture of seeking help, and
4. Encourage peer support and accessing resources and services.
When asked what was the one thing they learnt and the one thing they would do differently after the workshop, some of the answers from young people included:
“Take advantage of my blessings and keep in touch with my family and friends.”
“Note down how i’m feeling and why.”
