WRAP is a personal framework to give you ways of feeling better and managing your symptoms. It is a useful way of organising a lot of the techniques or ‘wellness tools’ that you may already use for easy reference and recognizing any triggers that may cause you to feel unwell.

Drop-in sessions for young people
Talking Minds are drop-in sessions for 14 to 17 years olds. We hope Talking Minds will become a hub for young people and their friends to connect and be heard, to try different things, and talk about things that concern them. Talking Minds sessions are open every Tuesday from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at North Lincolnshire Mind. It is a drop-in session, but we will also have some snacks, games, arts and crafts activities so young people can try new things. Later sessions will be introduced covering topics such as self-esteem, friendships, relationships, stress, etc. Everything will be provided free of charge. The support worker will also be available to talk more privately. Talking Minds also run in Barton Upon Humber, Brigg, Crowle, and Epworth. For more information about sessions in those locations please contact us on 01724 279500.

This project focuses on helping young adults to develop coping strategies, understand their emotions better and develop resilience for adult life.
