Life is a Rollercoaster
Life is a Rollercoaster was developed by Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust after we got feedback from young people that there was little accessible information available for 11-16 year olds about mental health and wellbeing in Cumbria.
A group of young people worked with our primary mental health workers to put together a successful bid for the Foundation Trust's Dragon's Den style competition to secure funding for this initiative.
We worked with members of the Carlisle Young Carers group, the Foundation Trust's Drug, Alcohol and Sexual Health service (DASH) and a number of other youth groups to put together this information. Two years on we are reviewing, updating and adding information. Again young people have been involved with the project giving us their feedback and giving us quotes about their personal experiences which are included on the website. We would like to say a big thank you to all the young people who helped with this project.
