The Name ‘Upturn’ Project was chosen after speaking to some young people in our service.
It was felt that this is a punchy, easy to remember name, and the Thesaurus meaning of this word reflected the service:
Improvement – (your wellbeing)
Increase- (Increase your confidence and self-esteem)
Recovery- (learn the skills to aid your recovery)
Rise – (Rise above things that are holding you back )
This Project will run for an 18 month pilot. This will enable the gathering of Key information, statistics and outcomes information to pursue funding sources for the project.

"I love to create videos that inspire people and make a difference to their lives. This is a short animation about what people go through all the time when it comes to mental health. It is such a horrible thing to go though and people have to go though it alone. You have no idea about what kind of help is out there for you and you are suffering from something that no one can see. I created this because no one ever talks about it and it affects almost everyone at some point in their life time. 'Upturn Young Peoples Service' has changed my life for the better and I wanted to get the message about the truth" - Service User
