Through the above work WWM realise that many of the boys and young men we came across had mental health issues but were not engaging with mental health services. We have developed a new project specifically targeting boys and young men with mental health issues and working with main stream services to support them in making their services more accessible to young men.
As in the first life cycle point, this is also a point at which we engage fathers who are not in education, employment or training. We use the same methodologies, but focus also on agencies that come across young fathers in this position.
Our logic model is based on evidence that building trusting relationships where all the boys and young men we work with, whether through structured school and youth project programmes or individual casework, outreach work, experience a genuine sense that we care and believe they can change their lives, and are willing to support them in this endeavour, their lives do change for the better.
