THE JAFFA PROJECT
Tackling mens mental health and suicide
The JAFFA Project is a mens mental health program, created in memory of Jamie McKitten who was a victim of suicide at the young age of 17. We will work with secondary schools across the North of England to provide bespoke workshops and discussions, from a variety of third part organisations and services, all tailored towards different areas of mental health and wellbeing. We will also look to work with gyms across the North of England to provide staff and parents with mental health training, alongside offering support around the development and understanding of relevant policies and procedures regarding young peoples mental health and safeguarding.
We also value ourselves in sharing the stories and experiences of other young people, who have been lost to suicide or have been fortunate to overcome their adversities - so we will also be producing and sharing a range of video content on our social media platforms.
