Here at OTR, we’ve been raising awareness of the issues that affect young people and the impact these can have on their emotional health and well-being. It was great to see so many friends and supporters at our AGM and Open House event on Tuesday afternoon, 9 October, and to welcome those who might have have been unaware of our work but wanted to know more. Thanks, in particular, to Heather Mathew, from Richmond CVS, who gave a wonderful summary of the challenges facing the voluntary sector in responding to young people’s mental health needs in our borough, and the value of our own work at OTR in this context. You can read what she had to say in the link below. It’s well worth taking a look – some of the facts are quite astonishing – and do please share the link to pass on its message and help spread the word.
