FREE Wellbeing Support For The Young LGBTQ+ Community

We know how tough it can be, and Covid-19 has made it even worse. The Wild Mind Project is offering a safe, confidential space in nature for you to share your feelings with like-minded young people who are struggling just like you. 

Nature can help, it really can, and creative activities give you the chance to express yourself without judgment. Most importantly, you will meet a group of new friends, who can support each other after the programme has finished.

A typical session might include a walk in nature, conservation work or gardening for the first hour. We then do a creative activity and talk. You can choose to share your thoughts and experiences if you want to or you can just listen. 

“The concept is amazing, the activities are really enriching and really well thought out. The mixture of learning, creating and then sharing was really stimulating to engage my anxious mind”, a young person who attended our programme.

Programmes are available in Hounslow and in Richmond/Kingston for young people aged 16-25.
