Youth in Mind is a project that brings together young people with an interest in mental health and wellbeing, and a desire to help make services better for the future.
Youth In Mind can support you to:
- Share your experiences around mental health
- Shape services to work for you and all young people
- Develop useful skills
- Meet new people
Youth in Mind hosts sessions throughout the week across Norfolk at a variety of youth groups and community venues. Get in touch with [email protected] to find a Youth in Mind group that suits you.
Children & Young People's Mental Health Charter
Children and Young People have worked together to create a Charter for Mental Health Services. This Charter sets out clear priorities and shines a light on the aspects of Mental Health Services that are most important to Children and Young People.
Youth in Mind Governance Group
The Youth in Mind Governance Group is one of the groups that Youth in Mind supports. This small group of young people helps influence Mental Health Services at the highest level. They work alongside the Executive Management Group, which is made up of senior leaders from Norfolk and Waveney’s Mental Health Services, providing support and sharing their ideas and experience.

I always look forward to having a good conversation at the Youth in Mind group after a busy day at college, and it feels great to be part of something as important as improving young people's mental health services.
Wellbeing and Dungeons & Dragons
Every two weeks, Youth in Mind plays Dungeons & Dragons at the The Risebrow Centre in Norwich. At this group, you can speak openly about your own experiences with local mental health services, and participate in changing and improving those services with the support of qualified Advisers and Youth Workers. Our DnD group is a great place to get to know other young people who care about mental health, while working together to create your own DnD campaign.
