What is Know Your Mind? 

Know Your Mind supports children and young people in the Bradford central area who are experiencing challenges around mental health and emotional wellbeing. We are here to help you feel equipped and empowered to enjoy life. 

Hear our CYP Community Workers Kelly and Beth talk about Young People’s Mental Health on BBC Radio Leeds for Mental Health Awareness Week.


Who is it for?

Know Your Mind is for young people aged between 8 and 19 (or up to 25 with additional needs such as special educational needs and disabilities) who are in the Bradford central area. This means they are either living, go to school in, or attend a GP surgery in an area with postcodes starting BD1, BD2, BD3, BD5, BD7, BD8 or BD9. 

Know Your Mind services:

  • ‘Mind Zone’ Wellbeing group sessions run for eight weeks; they vary in size, theme and location and can be a great way to meet other young people experiencing similar things in a safe, welcoming and comfortable environment. They are a chance to share experiences and understand more about mental health together. Find out more about Mind Zone here.
  • One-to-one sessions to explore your goals and discover new ways to look after your mental and emotional health.
  • We can attend existing groups, such as after-school clubs and activities, to provide you with opportunities to talk about emotional wellbeing, and understand mental health support available, empowering you to have the confidence to contact us for support if you need it.
