THinK stands for Teenage Health in Knowsley and has been designed by young people for young people. THinK was designed as an overall approach to Young People's health & wellbeing. This includes issues such as mental health, sexual health and child exploitation.
There are many services in Knowsley, that endorse THinK as a brand. The problem is, it can be confusing knowing who can help. The THinK website has been designed to give young people one place where they can seek help, information and get the support they need.
Check out the video below from Matt Ashton, the former Director of Public Health for Knowsley as he explains why THinK is so important not just for young people but for adults too at the THinK launch in 2015:
We want as many young people as possible to know about THinK and how to stay safe and be healthy. THinK is about promoting the website and services available for young people across Knowsley. Throughout the year there will be poster campaigns across Knowsley in venues such as Libraries, Leisure Centres, Youth Clubs and Schools and we will also be visiting events and festivals over the summer to spread the word.
The video below explores the concept of THinK further during the launch, back in 2015.
