Abbie Mitchell, Youth Wellbeing Project Co-ordinator, and Val Farmer, RB Mind’s Chief Executive receive our Best Charity Award
We are delighted to announce that Richmond Borough Mind has won this year’s Best Charity Award at the Richmond Business Awards for our Mindkit youth project. The awards were presented by the Richmond and Twickenham Times and Richmond Chamber of Commerce at a special gala event on 13 November at Twickenham Stadium.
Val Farmer, RB Mind’s Chief Executive said: "Richmond Borough Mind is thrilled to have been awarded Best Charity by Richmond CVS and we are hugely grateful to both RCVS for sponsoring this award and for the Chamber for the work it does to recognise the importance of the local voluntary sector. While we have provided services in the borough to adults with mental health problems for over 50 years, our new Mindkit project, for which we have won this award, is our first project focussing on young people.
"Most mental health problems will be established before the age of 24, and so in providing awareness and wellbeing sessions for young people aged 14-25 this project is helping young people to get help earlier, as the earlier a problem is supported the less severe the impact may be on the young person, their family and friends. We are delighted that the award gives us the chance to widen awareness in the borough of the work we do."
Our Mindkit project has delivered wellbeing sessions to over 1,100 young people in the borough this year and we aim to reach up to 3,000 by August 2017.
