What We Do

Mindkit offers free, interactive Wellbeing and Resilience Sessions to groups of young people, aged 14 to 25, in schools, colleges, universities, youth centres and a range of community organisations.

Young people learn about evidenced-based approaches called ‘The 5 Ways to Wellbeing’ and Mindful Living to look after their mental wellbeing and boost their resilience, which can improve their ability to cope with life’s challenges, their self-confidence and performance.

Mindkit is delivered by a partnership of Local Minds, funded by the Department of Health and evaluated by Goldsmiths, University of London.
