Isle Listen has announced a 3-year funding collaboration to provide mental wellbeing education and prevention on the Isle of Man.

It’s teamed up with  the Z Zurich Foundation and Zurich International – who is aiming to create transformative change in the lives of more than 1 million vulnerable people.

The grant is in recognition of the shared vision to promote positive mental health, help remove the stigma and improve access to psychological support services.

The funding will enable the Isle Listen team to reach out to the entire school and college population of the Isle of Man over the next three years – approximately 15,000 students and over 1,000 people working within the education sector, as well as supporting employers and delivering community-wide campaigns and resources.

It will also allow the provision of a mobile art therapy vehicle and expand the service further to support potential waiting lists in statutory services.
