AMETHYST

is a Small World Theatre project. We run workshops for young people who have experienced issues around self-harm, anxiety, depression, low confidence and low self-esteem. Amethyst works broadly with emotional well-being.

AMETHYST is REACHING WIDER and inviting Parents and Guardians of young people with mental health issues to join them. Small World Theatre’s very experienced project leaders and workers meet the Parent/ Guardian Group once a week on Zoom; providing a safe, non-judgemental space for anyone who is struggling to support their young person during these difficult times. Small World Theatre’s Amethyst team has formed a warm, friendly group to offer support and suggestions. Or they can just listen. Please contact amethystonline2020@gmail.com for more details.

AMETHYST during COVID-19

AMETHYST is temporarily working with young people online to support their ongoing needs, advising on coping strategies during lockdown. Amethyst is also working with parents/ guardians running online group sessions. We are looking for ways to increase our reach during this time and will keep you updated on this page.

Small World Theatre is actively monitoring the advice from Government and Public Health Wales about the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

AMETHYST at Green Ribbon Arts Festival

AMETHYST taking part on online festival 4/11/20 | 2pm – 3:30pm.

The Green Ribbon Arts Festival is a new event in Wales to promote how the arts can prevent mental ill health, challenge perceptions and improve artist’s networking.

As the event is taking place during the Covid-19 pandemic, the festival’s autumn programme is being held online. Between October 26 – November 7 they will be hosting a diverse arts programme, panel discussions, networking sessions, and sharing stories from some of the amazing people who are involved in the arts and mental health in Wales. One of those amazing people is Deri talking about AMETHYST. BOOK your space!

Mae AMETHYST cymryd rhan ar ŵyl ar-lein 4/11/20 | 2yp – 3:30yp. Mae Gŵyl Celfyddydau’r Rhuban Gwyrdd yn ddigwyddiad newydd yng Nghymru i hyrwyddo sut y gall y celfyddydau atal afiechyd meddwl, herio canfyddiadau a gwella rhwydweithio rhwng artistiaid.

Gan fod y digwyddiad yn digwydd yn ystod pandemig Covid-19, mae rhaglen yr ŵyl ar gyfer yr hydref yn digwydd ar-lein. Rhwng 26 Hydref a 7 Tachwedd byddant yn cynnal rhaglen gelfyddydol amrywiol gyda thrafodaethau panel, sesiynau rhwydweithio, a straeon gan rai pobl anhygoel sy’n rhan o’r celfyddydau a’r maes iechyd meddwl yng Nghymru. Dros yr wythnosau nesaf byddwn yn cyhoeddi mwy o’r rhaglen. Un o’r bobl anhygoel hynny yw Deri yn siarad am AMETHYST. ARCHEBWCH eich lle.

A series of animations were created by participants to demonstrate the value of the project. Supported by Cynnal y Cardi.
