Rethink’s Youth Mental Health Conference hosted No Bounds & I Am Hip-Hop Magazine Mental Wellbeing Through Arts Workshop. Hip-Hop artist Apex Zero delivered an “eye opening and brilliant” session on lyricism and we discovered many young talents!
Words can have a powerful impact on those hearing or reading them. Words can also have a powerful effect on the person creating them. Poetry, story telling, lyricism and other forms of writing have long been known to be a great way to express ones self. It empowers us to tell our story, express our feelings, and/or convey a message. There has been a long link between the positive effect of telling our stories and building mental health resilience. We have run workshops on how you can express your personal story through lyricism and poetry.
