Strong Young Minds is a Big Lottery funded project designed to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people in Herefordshire.


The SYM programme is for young people (10 - 26 yrs) who are disenfranchised, distressed, unemployed, at risk of social isolation, poor achievement and ill health, due to poor mental health and wellbeing.


We work with young people to address issues which can have an adverse effect on their mental health and wellbeing, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self harm, bullying, cyberbullying, relationship breakdown, employability, low self esteem, body image and loss.

Young people are offered the opportunity for 121 support, employability training, brief intervention therapy, workshops and groups in addition to peer listening and support.


The SYM programme works with young people, their parents/carers and professionals and is assisted by young project champions supporting their peers and raising awareness within their communities.
