A one day youth event on stress and anxiety from Bromley Youth Council is being held on Saturday 10 February.

Young people aged 11 to 19 in Bromley are invited to stop by the event from 11am to 4pm at The Unit A3:4 on the veranda (near Wagamama's) at The Glades, Bromley where a number of free activities will be available to take part in to help build resilience and manage stress and anxiety, all delivered by Bromley Youth Council members, Bromley Y and the Bromley Youth Support Programme.

Activities will include candle and stress-ball making, t-shirt printing, advice workshops to help develop social and emotional skills, mindfulness and relaxation activities.
