Emma Callin, Isle Listen Head of Income Development said: ‘One of our main aims is to empower young people on our Island with the skills to manage their own mental health and wellbeing. There are so many things we can do to promote positive mental health such as participating in the arts, as well as physical activity, any sort of hobby, or talking to a trusted friend. We’re thrilled that our Young Stars of Mann variety show will showcase the wealth of talent that exists amongst our Island’s young people who are pursuing their passions.’
