A new group for young people struggling with personal difficulies or mental health issues has been set up in Louth, in memory of Dom Panter.

Dom took his own life in 2012, at the age of 20, after battling depression.

The new group, which is a combination of a youth club and a support group, has been set up by Dom’s sister, Ellie. The group is based at the Park Avenue Youth Centre and is aimed at 13-19 year olds.

The sessions will take place every other Monday, starting on June 2, from 4-6pm.

Activities will include arts, cooking, meditation, card making, cognitive behaviour therapy and self-esteem activities. The club will support young people suffering from problems such as depression, bullying, self-harm, eating disorders, worries about sexual identity and suicidal feelings.

Contact Ellie Tuplin on 01507 328999 for details.

Ellie’s husband Gary will be taking part in a sponsored beard and head shave at the youth centre at 11am on July 12, with a cake stall and raffle, so come along and donate.
