New Staff at Richmond Borough Mind

Richmond Borough Mind is a charity that offers a wide range of services to people who suffer from mental health distress. Our services have ranged from drop in centres, social centres and counselling services. Under the leadership of Emma King the director of Richmond Borough Mind, the organisation is now growing and diversifying the support and services it offers to take into account the diverse needs of our clients.

As of July 2008, a new Community Development Project was launched with Bertine De Jongh acting as its project worker. The project aims to bring together the diverse communities of Richmond in order to have an active part in shaping the mental health services in the area.
