MENTAL HEALTH POEM – Can you hear me?

A poem written by our HYPE champions.

Me, yes me, can you hear me?
Eyes on me
No need to judge
Time is all I need
Are you listening?
Lend your ear to hear my needs

Help me understand myself
Encourage me to share my world
A listening ear is all I need
Lend me your ear, you’ll see how my problems seed
Take a moment and spend it with me
Help me out and you will see

Our HYPE Champion Henry and Louise, HYPE Champion and Barnardo’s volunteer, have collaborated and produced this poem, for Youth Mental Health Day, explaining to us all what it feels like when you have a mental health disorder and reminds us why it is important to take time and listen to those that need an open ear.
