Mindkit is funded by the Volunteering Fund and is a partnership with other local Mind associations across London: Bromley & Lewisham Mind; City & Hackney Mind; Richmond Mind
The Mindkit project aims to:
Peer Trainers will be offered free training and the opportunity to gain a Level 4 qualification on a Train the Trainer course, specializing in Wellbeing.
As an accredited trainer, we will support you to become part of our training team to deliver wellbeing sessions once a month to young people in Harrow, in different settings such as schools, colleges, youth centers and other organisations supporting young people.
The sessions will focus on common mental health problems for young people, improving the knowledge and understanding of wellbeing strategies and increasing the resilience of young people in Harrow.
The project is a great opportunity for 18-30 years old to achieve an accredited certificate, to gain experience working and supporting other young people, and for personal development e.g. increasing confidence, skills, and experience that can be applied to work and other areas of life.
Please note: we are not currently recruiting volunteers for this project.
The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge chatted to Mind in Harrow staff, volunteers, and services users when they visited the Mindkit youth wellbeing project to mark World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2016.
Mindkit volunteer trainer Yasmin Roble talked to the Duke when he sat in on their group session discussing mental health. “He was so sweet” she said. “He said we were heroes, and that he wanted the voices of young people to be amplified”.
Mindkit volunteers were joined by Time to Change young ambassadors and other young people from the Harrow Mind shop, Harrow Active Minds project, and Harrow Talking Therapies service at the event at Harrow College.
