Welcome

A care story is an innovative creative project that will harness the real experiences of children and young people in care in order to explore mental health and the impact of the care journey on well being.

This website will follow the journey of a group of young people as they shape and inform every stage of a creative process. Together they will create a powerful resource in the form of a booklet that uses powerful storytelling to reduce stigma around mental health.
