A Better You (Youth). FREE, one to one coaching sessions helping you to improve your mental health and wellbeing.

A Better You

A Personalised Plan to help you progress forwards.

A Better You is Mid Kent Mind’s personalised one-to-one wellbeing coaching programme. It aims to provide people with the opportunity to access support sessions that are built around their mental health and any problems or difficulties they may experience in everyday life.

Our Wellbeing workers will guide young people through these person-centred session in the hopes to empower them to identify areas where they may struggle and take proactive steps in those areas to boost both their confidence and their emotional resilience by developing more effective coping skills.

We won’t just work with them to address the problems they’re experiencing now – we’ll work with them to build their understanding and their knowledge, so they are better equipped to proactively manage life’s ups and down.

Some of the common areas explored during A Better You programme can include:

  • Managing my wellbeing and anger
  • Physical Health and Self-Care
  • Living skills and responsibilities
  • Social Networks
  • Relationships
  • Identity and Self-Esteem
  • Aspirations
  • Challenging and/ or addictive behaviours

Whilst these are common areas addressed during these sessions, sessions will be individual to the young person participating in them.

In short – they are in control of the sessions they access, and the areas which they wish to cover.  Our ‘A Better You’ programme lasts for six weeks – with each week consisting of a one-hour session with one of our Wellbeing Workers.

By the end of the six weeks, we hope to have helped young people to overcome adversities, and to have equipped them with the tools to confidently address the challenges they may face as they progress into adult life.

Due to ongoing remote working as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic, all of our sessions are taking place virtually via ZOOM. Sessions are available free of charge thanks to funding from partners – including the National Lottery Community Fund, Kent County Council’s Early Help Programme and Kent County Council Member’s Grants. 

Our Youth Sessions are available for young people between the ages of 10 & 18.
