Three For 3

http://scouts.org.uk/threefor3

So many people want to help others during the coronavirus crisis, including young people. We wanted to know what our young people thought was the most important thing for them to take action on, so we did the easiest thing – we asked them.

At the top of their list was ‘peer support’. They told us that young people’s mental wellbeing is going to be disproportionately affected by the current coronavirus crisis, and yet it’s not being widely talked about.

That’s why, we’re asking young people to share Three for 3. Write (or draw) three things you’re doing to look after your mental wellbeing during this challenging time and share these ideas with three other people.

Once you’ve shared your three things, the people you’ve shared with should share their own three things with you and three others, keeping the conversation about wellbeing going. You can do this with your family, friends, or if you’re over 13 and have social media, by tagging people on social media using #Threefor3.

By taking action you’ll be helping other people find out new ways to support their wellbeing.

Remember, only share things you feel comfortable sharing, and remember – when something’s on the internet, it’s ‘out there’ for anyone to see and very difficult to delete permanently.  Further information available at http://scouts.org.uk/threefor3
