In North Liverpool, Psyched! will work with young men from some of most deprived boroughs in the UK. where high crime, gang and drug culture is rife, and positive male role models are scarce.

Psyched! aims to engage and support these young men with a range of dynamic activities. As well as taking a wrecking ball to mental health problems, the project also helps clients develop vital coping strategies.

The grant will pay for a project co-ordinator, a range of activities, an external evaluation of the project and a contribution towards the organisation’s overheads.
