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

Through the success of our project in Liverpool we are now establishing a St Helens home for the Feeling Funny Youth Club at the Citadel Arts Hub, led by our very own Stand Out graduate Cameron Jones.
