News & Events

Coronavirus Update
During this difficult time, we want to share with you how we as the children, young people and families teams at Newport Mind will be providing services for the forseeable future. 
The health, safety and wellbeing of young people and their families are at the center of everything that we do and so we have decided, in light of the Governments advice, to suspend all face to face groups and meetings across our projects. 
Instead, we are offering phone and email support, for anyone who has any questions about mental health and how to deal with this uncertain situation. 
Our young volunteers will also be offering an online scheme called Write With You, to help keep connections going for anyone that finds themselves out of school, college and uni.
We will also be posting regularly on our Facebook page (@changingmindsprojects). Staff and volunteers will be posting blogs and helpful information about how to best promote positive mental health and wellbeing whilst social distancing/ social isolating. Be sure to follow us and let us know what content you would like to see/ hear about on the page!
For any young people that are already involved with our services, our project staff will be in touch to offer support virtually. If you are one of these young people and you haven't heard from us yet, please let us know and we will be in touch. 
Here are our contact details:

Take care!

Project Updates

The Changing Minds project in its current form will be ending on March 31st 2019.  The Changing Minds project was lottery funded for five years to support young people across Gwent who were experiencing difficulties with their mental health.  The lottery funding ended in November and Newport Mind committed to funding the project until March 2019 in the hope of securing continuation funding from Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB).

ABUHB tendered for a peer support project for 14 -19 year olds. The Changing Minds project submitted a tender, however the contract was awarded to Gofal.  The Changing Minds project will work with our existing clients, clients on our waiting list and others services to manage young people’s transition to other services appropriate to their needs and will work closely with Gofal’s peer support project in that process. We will share details of Gofal’s peer support project once they are available.

There will be a Changing Minds service in Newport working with 16-25 year olds. In the other areas of Gwent young people aged 18 + can access support with their mental health via the Gwent mental health consortium and consideration may be given to supporting people aged 16 and over in transition.

Newport Mind is currently piloting a whole school approach to mental health, provides services to children young people and families via the Families First Family Wellbeing project and is actively seeking funding to provide more services to children and young people.

Thank you for your support for the Changing Minds project over the years, with your help, the  project, its staff and its volunteers made a positive difference to the lives of nearly 3000 young people in Gwent .
