Your own fair but challenging caseload will include extensive group and individual guided self-help, ensuring that our service is responsive to the needs of all communities in Richmond.

Richmond Borough Mind is committed to clinical excellence and continuing professional development for our staff team through developing their skills and special interests. This year the PWPs attended the National Networking Forum for the fourth year running, and have recently organised training with Marie Chellingsworth, as well as attending training at UCL on working with Long Term Conditions.
