Abstract

Right Here Newham is a five year project that is part of the national Right Here initiative funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation and managed jointly by the Foundation and the Mental Health Foundation (2009 -2014).
The initiative aims to develop new approaches to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of young people aged 16 to 25 years by early intervention and the participation of young people in all aspects of project development and manage is integral to its approach.
The evaluation consisted of making observations of the drama classes and Men’s group discussions in the final few weeks of the project, and interviewing the students involved.
It had been hoped to identify and interview students who had been involved in the earlier work of the project in the college but this was not possible.
The evaluation aims to capture the detail of how the project worked and to give some indication of how the participants felt about the project and the impact it was having on their lives.
