Free Wellbeing Programmes for Young People at risk of, or living with, mental ill-health
Sunday 13th September to 11th October 2020
Feeling low, anxious, stressed or angry? Worrying about isolation, study/work, your appearance, your health or friendships? You are not alone.
Join us for a range of creative and fun nature based activities. Both art and nature can make a significant difference to your mental health. Our programme can help to release stress, alleviate symptoms of depression, build optimism and develop a sense of belonging.
The Wild Mind Project is a not-for-profit CIC that offers early intervention for young people living with, or susceptible to, stress, depression and anxiety. We have a programme funded by The National Lottery, that offers free places for 13-25 year-olds, to take part in a 5-weekly half-day programme, starting in September 2020 at various locations in Richmond, Kingston or Hounslow Boroughs. Public Health England has given us the authorisation to run our outdoor programmes adhering to agreed Covid-19 safety protocols.
We use a combination of outdoor art therapy, designed to facilitate verbal and non-verbal communication, strengthen relationships and advance coping skills, plus nature activities and mindfulness, to help alleviate anxiety and symptoms of depression.
PRICE: Free of charge.
DATE: Subject to Coronavirus restrictions. Sun 13th Sept to Sun 11th Oct 2020
TIME: 10.00am-12.30pm or 1.00pm-3.30pm
LOCATION: the sessions will be held in Bushy Park, Richmond upon Thames
