For Mental Health Awareness Week, we have created a special kindness-themed issue of our Mindful Memo in which we take a look at how being kind to others and to ourselves is good for our mental and physical health.
We also consider how kindness under lockdown is pervading all aspects of our collective lives from the world of work to the environmental campaign and as a result how society could be re-shaped with kindness at its heart.

Next week is Mental Health Awareness Week 2020. The theme this year is Kindness. During the week, Richmond Borough Mind will be running a range of workshops around this theme, focusing on being kind to others and kind to ourselves. There will be sessions on Mindfulness, Self-Compassion for Carers, Art, Yoga, Dance and Meditation. You can find a timetable of all the events here. If you would like to attend a workshop please sign up to Eventbrite or email [email protected]
Our Youth Wellbeing Service is launching a new Peer Support group for people aged 18-25.

The group is run by volunteers with lived experience of mental health difficulties and is open to anyone in the local community who may be struggling with stress, anxiety, low mood, isolation or mental health difficulties and provides a place where people can get support from others in similar situations.

We have recently redeveloped our website with new functionality including a new events calendar with detailed information on all our activities and venues and maps to get you there, plus more accessible ways to refer yourself to our services.
We have also added our social media feeds including Facebook and Twitter to each page so you can keep up to date with everything that is going on within all our projects and services.
Over the coming months we will be adding more new features to our website including developing our fundraising pages so that if you would like to raise money for us through taking part in a sponsored run, cycle, sky dive or anything else that comes to mind you will be able to set up your own fundraising page on our site. Please watch this space for further developments.
