About Project

Mind in Harrow is offering a FREE an innovative, peer-led service to empower young people (aged 11+) to improve their mental wellbeing.

During the COVID-19 restrictions, we are able to deliver our assemblies online. Please enquire for details.

Peer-led assemblies and group workshops, delivered in partnership with secondary schools in Harrow, focus on building resilience and techniques to improve their self-esteem.

Mind in Harrow has trained a team of young people, with experience of mental health struggles, who lead the workshops and talk to students in a relatable way about how they can help themselves.

The Mind network has trialled this programme with 16,000 pupils across London, which was evaluated by Goldsmiths College and found to achieve significant benefit.

Making assemblies covering mental health can be hard because it is a hard topic to talk about it. Mind in Harrow tackles this well by including activities such as mindfulness exercises and making the topic concise and interactive.

Including a peer led approach helps to make the sessions, friendly and relatable.
In a time like now, where many uncertainties have been created because of the pandemic, the topic of young people's mental health/ wellbeing is integral.

The assemblies have been really informative and I am so impressed that even during lock-down HeadsUp have been giving assemblies online.
Covid has been a very difficult time for a lot of people, and these assemblies have been really helpful in trying to help give young people coping strategies and find ways to manage stress.
