This is a new series of FREE peer support groups from Richmond Borough Mind. Our new groups are for young people aged 14-16, 16-18, and 18-25 struggling with any form of mental health difficulty. Young people do not require a diagnosis – they could be have concerns due to bullying, social isolation, signs of depression, anxiety (including intense exam stress), or for any other reason.
The groups will be taking place in 4 locations, each running once a month, as outlined below. They are designed to offer a place for young people to both freely share their experience with others who identify with them, and to have fun, express themselves creatively, and benefit from time and space away from anything else they may be facing. The most beneficial thing for young people in these situations is to feel that they’re not alone or abnormal – and that is precisely what peer support groups can offer!
The first session for each of the four groups is:
Twickenham (age 18-25): Tuesday 7th Feb at St Mary’s University, 7-8pm
Hampton (age 14-16): Thursday 9th Feb at Hampton Youth Project, 5-6pm
Richmond (age 16-18): Wednesday 15th Feb at Richmond Library Annexe, 5-6pm
Mortlake (age 14-16): Monday 27th Feb at Mortlake Powerstation, 7-8pm
Young people are welcome to join whichever of the groups is most accessible to them, regardless of which area they live. Anybody who is interested in coming should contact Esther Rich (Youth Wellbeing Coordinator at Richmond Borough Mind) via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07889 705695
