Are you feeling funny?


Our Feeling Funny Youth programme is a mental health support programme with a twist. We use comedy, laughter and humour as tools to help support and nurture young people’s emotional and social wellbeing.


The programme is comprised of a series of different workshops to help young people develop and sustain the skills required to attain positive mental health and wellbeing which include:

  • Seven week comedy programmes that culminate in a performance in front of family and friends

  • One off interactive ‘Well Funny’ workshops that teach the importance of play, laughter and humour in our lives to tackle stress and anxious thoughts and feelings

  • A free bi-monthly comedy youth club comprised of comedy workshops, masterclasses and personal and professional development opportunities

  • Quarterly Feeling Funny steering committee

  • Youth led Liverpool Comedy Festival showcase event (linked to our Feeling Funny Comedy Youth Club)

The overall aims of the programme are to:

  • Improve confidence and self-esteem

  • Enhance communication skills to help with discussing difficult to access topics such as mental health

  • Improve and build relationships and new friendships

  • Provide an alternative support mechanism to cope with difficult and stressful situations

  • To provide young people with a chance to have fun, be silly and instill happiness and laughter into their lives

  • Increase awareness of taking care of your mental health and using forms of support such as humour to tackle low mood

** We would like to thank the Liverpool One Foundation and Garfield Weston Foundation for making the Feeling Funny Youth programme a possibility. Without their funding we would have been unable to branch our and extend our mental health offer to young people across Merseyside**
