Joe Wells

Hello, my name is Joe Wells and I’ve just been appointed as the new Young Persons Information, Advice and Support Service Development Worker here at PDF.I have come from a previous role at Reading University as a participation tutor on a course training CAMHS clinicians. I also did lots of talks, training and writing on mental health and specifically OCD which I suffered from as a teenager.I’m hoping to take my passion for meaningful participation and access to services that help young people and use it to help create an IASS that works for all young people.I’m looking forward to meeting everyone that PDF work with and am keen to hear opinions on how Portsmouth IAS can be more young person friendly. My email address is joe.wells@portsmouthiass.org.uk

Last Thursday around 40 young people and 40 professionals met at Portsmouth Guildhall to talk about Mental Health.

Everyone gave their opinion on what was going well in the city to support young people who experience mental ill-health and also what could be done better.

The event was featured in the Portsmouth News!


The event was organised by the Future in Mind group. Future in Mind are a group of young people who work with services to make sure that young people have a say in how mental health services are run.

If you would like to find out more about Future in Mind email dynamiteportsmouth@gmail.com or come to their next event on the 20th of March (free ticket link below).
