All about URBRUM
The URBRUM Project is community driven. It aims to promote a much needed dialogue on issues related to mental well-being.
It is specifically targeted at young people who may have been given a raw deal or people who just need a second chance. But URBRUM is not exclusive – it aims to include everyone and to appeal to everyone.
A number of young people are likely to experience mental ill health every year and there is still a great stigma attached to mental health problems. Unfortunately, our young people are the ones who are least likely to engage with health, social care and well-being opportunities.
The URBRUM Project hopes to address this problem, bridging the gap between the community and good mental health awareness.
It has a multi-cultural, multi-faith focus on a range of life-style themed areas. URBRUM provides opportunities for young people to improve their life chances and give back to their community. It provides invaluable signposting information and volunteering opportunities in the fields of Media, Health and Social Care, along with training and a pathway to further education.
Most importantly, the URBRUM project provides a highly personalised programme of engagement with targeted young people.
The URBRUM website and magazine provide an accessible hub for Birmingham’s Health and Social Care services, as well as a platform from which the community can have a voice about these services and any other issues that may be affecting people’s lives.
