Wearside Youth for Christ is passionate about seeing you people's lives changed by Jesus. We endeavour to do this by showing Jesus in a way which is relevant to every young person in the Wearside area. In places like schools, churches and local communities, using a variety of activities. We demonstrate the love of God, declare who Jesus is, encourage a decision to follow Him and disciple young people to live their lives to the full.

Mental Health Training

Now, more than ever, we need to be well prepared to support young people emotionally and spiritually. Record numbers of young people are being diagnosed with serious mental health conditions, are struggling with their emotions and need well-informed support. The NHS and other services are overstretched.


Now is the time for church pastors, youth and children’s workers and parents to learn to support young people, gaining up-to-date knowledge, and honing their skills so that we can do this well. 


Wearside Youth for Christ have teamed up with Dave Burke – a local pastor and accredited Mental Health First Aid instructor – to offer seven hours of online training, spread over three sessions, to help us meet these challenges.
