Back Mind Aid

This group workshop is for anyone aged 11-17 struggling with difficult feelings related to stress, anxiety, low mood, or depression.

Please note that the Mind Aid sessions are moving online due to the circumstances around the Coronavirus. These start at the end of April and you can sign up with the button above. Read more about OTR’s availability here


At Mind Aid, we look together at how living in difficult situations can cause these feelings, and learn ways that might help us manage better in what is often a stressful world. The workshop also offers a space to share with other young people going through the same stuff, but you don’t have to talk if you don’t want to.

You’ll learn how to protect yourself from everyday challenges, how to challenge your thoughts, how to relax and feel safe (a strategy that can also help with sleeplessness!), and how to use simple techniques to build and maintain good mental health.

Each workshop meets once a week for six weeks, and each has about 10 young people of a similar age in attendance.

Upcoming dates:

Tues 28th Jan – Tues 10th March
Chipping Sodbury Youth Club, BS37 6AH
Monday 20th April – Monday 1st June (with a week break for May half-term)
@ OTR, St. Michael’s Hill BS2 8EA

Please note that you can only sign up to one OTR group, or one-to-one therapy, at a time (our groups are: Mind Aid, hARMED and Shameless).
