About this Case Study

We will present Aye Mind, a project funded by the European CHEST fund and a partnership between Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS, Snook, the Mental Health Foundation and Young Scot.

The project focused on improving the mental health and wellbeing of young people by making better use of the internet, social media and mobile technologies. Co-design sessions with young people aged 13 to 21 identified what digital tools could improve mental wellbeing for them. We co-produced and delivered:

  • an online platform including a map of resources
  • a digital toolkit for all who work with young people
  • a series of GIF and image making workshops
  • an online campaign for young people

Eve Georgieva

With a smartphone in one hand, pen and paper in the other and a voice recorder in her pocket, Eve holds a dual role at Snook, which includes communications and research. Working on both digital and communication strategy projects and conducting both qualitative and quantitative research, Eve often asks "If technology is the answer, what was the question?". With a background in criminology and politics and mixed research methods, she works on projects related to user research, democracy and civic design, citizen engagement and co-design projects.

Eve has worked on projects including AyeMind; the development of a youth worker's toolkit content and co-design workshop with young people; and user research with hundreds of lovely Glasgow citizens in development of the council's new website. She has just completed work on the 'tech VS abuse' research project funded by Comic Relief looking at the potential of digital technologies in tackling domestic violence and abuse. In her spare time, Eve helps out human rights organisations with various things including the translation of court cases and communications support. She has a particular interest in transitional justice, corporate social responsibility and feminism and international politics.
