Word the Front Line gives Young People a Voice

Word the Front Line is a youth slam programme that sees young people at secondary schools across New Zealand competing for the title of slam champion. Mental health themes are popping up in many of the videos from this year’s heats and you can find them here on SAPC’s Youtube channel.

One of our favourites comes from “Emma” at Rangitoto College.
