Big Give Kind2Mind

Bristol Mind have launched their ‘Big Give Kind 2 Mind Fundraising Campaign’!

Every £1 donated will be doubled between 14th -28th May!

The focus of the campaign is on providing more free counselling support for 18-25 year olds in Bristol through our Meeting Minds service.

121 Counselling for Young Adults in Bristol

We want to support 30 young adults aged 18-25 across Bristol and South Gloucestershire to access 121 counselling which acknowledges the unique challenges they have faced since COVID19 and helps them to navigate adult life with creativity and confidence.

Situation

Young Adults aged 18-25 are struggling to access the most appropriate mental health support for them, with long waiting lists and high costs associated with mainstream counselling. A generation deeply affected by COVID19, young adults cite loss of confidence and identity confusion, greater isolation, and over-reliance on online lifestyles. They also have increased stress and anxiety associated with overwhelming social, economic and environmental problems facing them as they enter adult life.

Solution

We want to work more closely with 18-25-year-olds – particularly those with minoritised identities – to discover what modalities and formats of counselling work best for them. We will use this funding to provide timely and appropriate 121 online/ face-to-face counselling, with specialist provision for LGBTQIA and neurodiverse individuals.
