Our Young Patrons supporting Children’s Mental Health Week 2024

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.16″ _module_preset=”default” hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″]

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and the theme is  ”Growing Together“.

Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential.
However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

We are fortunate to have a diverse and talented group of Young Patrons who help to raise Autism Awareness and are passionate to change the perceptions on Autism. We cannot do this alone and this is why our incredible Young Patrons are so important and fantastic role models. 
Click here to find out more about our young patrons who are helping us spread the word who are passionate about helping with our mission.

Mental health awareness week – an article by Paul Isaacs

Mechanisms Of Mental Health

Mental health is something that can and does change over time, the world moves on regardless and so do you.

Sometimes this is not the internal feeling however this can be influenced by many different, nuanced, person centred and often inter linking factors.

  • Core beliefs (warped worldviews vs. connected authentic outlooks)
  • Self-Reflection (the ability to manage your own selfhood)
  • Information Processing (the way in which the brain filters information)
  • Nervous System Responses (many mental health conditions mean the nervous system is overused)
  • Emotional Regulation (the ability to recognise, filter and mange yours and others emotional frequencies)
  • Environment (caregiving, educational & community)
  • Attachment, Friendship & Relationship Dynamics (poor boundaries, emotional incest, projection & manipulative behaviours)

Everything Is Linked 

These factors (in various guises, degrees, and presentations) will have an impact on someone’s idea of “self”, personal expectations vs. connected one’s, perception of danger and threat, how one internalises their own emotions and healthy spaces for expressing and objective reasoning, boundaries, and healthy modelling of friendships and relationships.

How dance makes me feel, it makes feel at ease, alive, and powerful.

It’s the same way when I make music, except I’m not writing words but instead moving to them and doing my own interpretation. Dance to me is basically just music but presenting and releasing my emotions in a non-lyrical form.

Here at Studio 4 we are an inclusive dance organisation that offer ALL young people and dancers an opportunity to express themselves. We celebrate that being different is COOL and encourage all those we work with to be kind and embrace who they are.

Working with young people with Autism has allowed our practice to evolve and be more inclusive. Teachers and dancers have learnt to be more patient, flexible and considerate of each other’s needs. We are proud to work with many young people with Autism and disabilities.

As an organisation we encourage ALL young people to achieve their absolute best.

Dancing helps me feel calm less stressed and gives me an energy boost I feel more confident now as I’m not the best dancer, but when I perform i feel it helps me send out positive vibes and it helps with my confidences and improves me emotionally, I feel happy and warm inside especially after a busy day at UNI.

An article from our Ambassador Paul Isaacs
Supporting Children’s Mental Health Week 2023

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.19.5″ _module_preset=”default” hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″]

Children are little people who are developing, growing, and living so maybe connecting the somewhat obvious link to child and mental health is key?

Environmental Cladding

As adults we are a product of one’s environment, belief systems, worldly expectations, concepts of what is “normal” and bias concepts of what is “other”.

Our “World” Through the lenses of others

Core beliefs begin from birth to late infancy they come from people of significance in our lives, their words, their actions and the can delve into the subconscious.

Connecting With Others 

Maybe this is the multifaceted starting point for mental health challenges? attachment to others? Friendships? Future relationships? Our ideas about sexuality and/or sexual relationships.

Perceptual Self or Connected Self?

You could say one is born a “clean slate” foundation wise and with a mixture of nature and nurture (or lack thereof).

One’s ideas of the world start to emerge from observational and situational circumstances

Knowing “You”

Internal growth starts early an adult is a product of their childhood environment.

A journey into the interior is not meant to be a pleasant adventure but it’s worthy if the goal is to find who you really are.

Paul Isaacs 2023

Helping prevent stress and anxiety for your pets on firework night – by Tess Eagle Swan 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.18.0″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]

​Fireworks night is approaching fast

It can be very stressful for animals and some people too.

We can start to prepare our pets for firework night.

Dorwest herbs for people who prefer natural methods have 25% off their calming formulas at the moment. They are a well established company with excellent products. Prepare for calm! (dorwest.com)

For more practical advice the Dogs Trust have this information here: Helping your dog cope with fireworks | Dogs Trust

Make the effort to put things into place for your pet. Considering their needs, mental and physical. They are also emotional beings. They can experience extreme anxiety, stress and fear. So it is our job to take this seriously and protect them the best we can.  It is part of the responsibility of having a pet. Looking after them and all their needs creates a deeper bond and connection.

Hull is to host this year’s UK Youth Parliament annual conference. Members of Youth Parliament aged 11 to 18, from all over the UK will visit the city between 22 and 24 July for the conference being held at Hull University.

One of our Young Patrons, Logan Richard, age 13, is a Member of Youth Parliament (MYP) representing Hull shared:

“I’m really looking forward to the annual conference because we can talk about issues affecting young people with Youth Parliament reps from lots of other cities. It’s good to hear other young people’s experiences, thoughts, and ideas. This year, Hull Youth Parliament Members will be raising the issues of wellbeing and mental health. I’m sure we will have a great conference and that we will successfully voice the opinions of 11- to 18-year-olds and make a difference.”

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.17.6″ hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″]

Anna Kennedy OBE was honoured and proud to have been asked on Friday to be a Patron of the Warren Clark Golfing Dreams registered charity, set up to deliver S.N.A.G Golf (Starting New at Golf) and Tri Golf to disabled, and disadvantaged, individuals, and groups for free.

Mainly through golf related activities, the charity set out to make a difference to people’s lives, encouraging them to be socially active, and challenge themselves to take part in sport.

Through their fun sessions, which are inclusive for all, they do team building activities, encourage people to socialise, have fun, reduce isolation, and spend time together.

Warren, whom the charity is named after, is a young man with Autism and learning disabilities. Warren is passionate about golf and represented team GB at the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019.

Warren is a qualified S.N.A.G Golf coach and loves to share his passion with others. Introducing golf to a wide range of disadvantaged people is what Warren dreams to do and does.

In the summer of 2019 Warren Clark Golfing Dreams attended over thirty-five local events and introduced golf to over 6,000 people.

Whilst spending quality time with their own family members and friends, people from all walks of life come together in our sessions, meet new people, work as a team, and learn to communicate with others. People with physical and learning disabilities, and differences of faith and culture interact in our community sessions where we teach golf, teamwork, and social tolerance.

Their organisation has been previously funded by Sport England to purchase a Snag Golf Inflatable which was the first in the U.K.

Anna shared: “Warren is an amazing, kind, and caring young man and fantastic role model. He has volunteered at the Golf Centre since he was 10 years old. His passion for teaching golf to autistic children and adults as well as individuals with varying disabilities is clear to see. He spoke to me about his exciting future plans with the support from his family and the golf club. I am excited to be Patron and will support him where I can”.

An article by our young Patron – Callum 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.17.4″ hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″]

I am Callum I am fifteen and I am a young patron for Anna Kennedy Online.

I love dance so much and this week I was asked to be a guest performer at a school dance competition that I used to compete in when I was in primary school.
It was in a big theatre, and I felt strange that they would want me to be the guest performer and remembered me from competing which was years ago!

During the comp I helped out at the back with my old school dance teacher and helped entertain the kids my sister was one of them, one of the little kids said I was the best dancer she had ever seen lol I also made my old school dancer teacher cry when I danced.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.17.4″ _module_preset=”default” column_structure=”3_4,1_4″][et_pb_column _builder_version=”4.17.4″ _module_preset=”default” type=”3_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.17.4″ hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″]

When I went on stage my music wouldn’t play so I was stood there for ages which gets me a bit stressed as I didn’t know what was going to happen. I like to know what is happening and felt silly just standing there.

Finally, a lady came to talk to me about when I started dancing and asked me to give a message to people I do not really like talking but i told them to never stop any disability stop you doing what you love and believe in yourself!

At last, my music worked. I loved performing on the stage I’m always happy when I’m dancing and don’t really get nervous, I shocked everyone when I pulled out all my tricks and people actually stood up when I finished dancing which was cool, people thought I choreographed the whole thing, but I just know my music and freestyle what I feel at the time

I love being able to show people what I can do and that having autism and ADHD should never stop you doing what you love.

It felt good to be back doing a solo on stage which I have not done for ages when I am dancing is when I am happy!

Heidi (Callum’s Mum) shared:

“Watching Callum on that stage made me burst with pride, I was worried how he would handle all the technical problems, but he handled it like a true professional.
Seeing him as a guest performer at a competition he has competed in made me quite emotional. He has had a lot of struggles and tough times recently but watching him so happy and alive when he is dancing means everything to me, Autism ADHD and anxiety is tough, but he does not let it hold him back”.
