Steps to get it done:
We believe strongly in preventative mental health support being the answer to an ongoing crisis.

We are passionate about the heritage and the talent within North Tyneside, The Ripple Effect will draw upon local artists for the soundtrack to make this a true North Tyneside piece. We also hope “The Ripple Effect” will help statutory services and local authorities shape future services based on the needs of the community and highlight how the voluntary sector can help reduce the ripple effect of poor mental health. Our aim is to inspire positive action towards improving mental health services and support for young people.
