Myles and Andrew performed their song produced as part of the Just Health project.
Ebi and Sephton spoke about their experiences and views of trauma and gang association, and Whitney introduced her spoken word focusing on experiences of stigma and labelling.

A delegate said of the event afterwards,

“Whole presentation from the team was terrific. All of the young people were able to speak about their traumatic backgrounds without being overwhelmed, to draw sensible conclusions and to think at higher policy levels. Very impressive and also moving accounts of their early lives.”
