YOUNG PEOPLE in Tamworth can find support, inspiration, or even a "kick" into action at an event set down for Tamworth this year.
Angela Farr-Jones was inspired to do something about the mental health of young people when she realised her four kids - aged in their 20s - had been to more funerals than she had.
So, Stand Tall was created.
The event will tour Tamworth for the first time in September, and Ms Farr-Jones said she was "really excited" for the day.
"We know that there are many things that are common problems that youth face, but there are also some specific to rural youth," she said.
Stand Tall aims to inspire hope immedaitely and as a long-term effect, and the Tamworth event will feature speakers like Amber Lawrence, Eloise Wellings and Michael Crossland.
Stand Tall will be on from 9am to 2pm on September 3, at TRECC.
