Abstract or Description

Mindkit is a universal peer facilitated mental health and wellbeing intervention devised by local Mind organisations in London and delivered to 18,233 young people across five London boroughs, primarily in schools during assemblies or class time. The stated aims of the Mindkit sessions were to increase young people’s knowledge of approaches to manage their wellbeing and develop resilience; and to signpost young people to appropriate sources of support. This evaluation, carried out by Goldsmiths, University of London, presents quantitative and qualitative data from 8449 of the 12-20 year olds who experienced a Mindkit session and qualitative data from eight organisations where Mindkit sessions had been delivered to assess the effectiveness of the intervention against stated aims. This evaluation also
looks at data from 85 of the Mindkit Youth Wellbeing Trainers
(MYWT) and the Mind-based Volunteer Coordinators to assess
the benefit that volunteering for this programme had on the
volunteers themselves.
