The Inspiring City Awards celebrate the people and organisations helping Glasgow to flourish. This year’s finalists are now announced… *drum rolls here please*

After its launch, our Aye Mind project – a partnership between NHS Glasgow & Clyde, Young Scot and the Mental Health Foundation, and funded by the European Union – is shortlisted in the Industry & Young People Innovation awards category! The project aims to explore and develop a digital platform with and for young people, aimed at promoting their mental health and wellbeing.

“The project looks at giving more autonomy to young people for not only their wellbeing, but also where they feel services could begin to meet young people on platforms they already engage with in everyday life.”

A GIF created by Caitlin at a Ayemind co-design workshop in Glasgow and won Adaptive Lab’s competition. After her mum suffered a heart attack, Caitlin found this term triggering. The workshop allowed her to take control of the phrase and at the end of the workshop, she felt more comfortable with the language around heart attacks.

We’re beyond delighted and want to congratulate all of the nominees across all categories. The awards ceremony is on 8th September and our team are now coordinating their outfits…
