Esther Rich, Youth Wellbeing Project Coordinator
Richmond Borough Mind currently runs two young people’s projects:
Our Mindkit project trains volunteers with personal experience of mental health issues to deliver free wellbeing sessions to audiences of young people aged 14-25.
Below you can watch a film in which two of our Mindkit Youth Wellbeing Trainers, Tim and Cassie, introduce our Mindkit project and illustrate what you can expect at a Mindkit session.
Find out more about Mindkit.
Our Bounce project uses the same model for 10-14 year-olds.

The sessions take place throughout the borough of Richmond in schools, colleges, youth centres and other venues, helping young people develop mental resilience. If like us you are interested in the wellbeing of young people you may wish to sign up to our wellbeing sessions.
Our sessions are designed around evidence-based models primarily the Five Ways to Wellbeing and living mindfully and are run by trained volunteers who have personal experience of mental health problems.
We are excited to be expanding our youth involvement by introducing Peer Support groups for young people aged 14-25 experiencing mental health difficulties. Find out more here.
Richmond Borough Mind has produced a new Youth Wellbeing Guide for 10-25 year-olds.
In this guide you can find information and contact details on topics including wellbeing, bullying, eating disorders, counselling, drugs and alcohol, sexuality, disability, bereavement and caring for someone.
