The “Comeback from COVID-19”, or COCO project, is working with young people to overcome these challenges by creating a safe and comfortable environment at their local YMCA centre to address their physical and mental health needs. In this space young people from the local community are provided access to professional psychologists during mental health meetings and therapy sessions. Young people are also given the space to share their feelings, personal experiences with their peers. They are also provided with tools necessary to help them to apply healthy coping strategies in their lives. To promote a healthier lifestyle the COCO project has also hosted various sporting events, through the youth centre, to encourage the practice of physical health.
This project is part of the Big Six
