Recorded September 2010 on a CAHMS (Child and adolescent mental health services) weekend radio workshop with Lyonheart Training.

Using radio production as a process, this group of mental health service users, had the opportunity to work with public speaking, cooperative problem solving, creative communication for a specific audience, role play, debating, research, focus finding, working to a deadline.

All team roles contained the need for individual accountability and responsibility and the possibility to excel through effective collaboration.

All individuals will have a deep understanding of at least one key production role, and an overview of all others. All will be familiar with a radio studio and how it works, and able to work effectively on their own and in a group to tight deadlines.

All individuals were offered the opportunity to learn something beyond their previous experience. It was challenging and fun for this group of young people to target the elders on the same workshop as their audience.
