Soapbox postcards is a Brighton and Hove based peer mentor scheme that aims to encourage positive mental health in children locally. Based on the concept created by Frank Warren – “Half a million secrets”, postcards are given to young people in schools, youth clubs and community groups with the question: “What is it like being a young person today? ”Young people design their postcard, write their response to the question on the back and post it back to us anonymously. Once the young person has posted their card to us, we tailor the support available based on the information we receive via themes. Soapbox postcards aim to give children a platform to voice their concerns without the fear of being labelled, singled out or stigmatised for speaking out openly.
