We are a multi-borough service, working with children, young people (ages 0-25 years old) and their families/carers to promote good mental health and wellbeing.


In Barnet and Hillingdon, we have been commissioned by the local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups to deliver mental health and wellbeing webinars, 1-2-1, and group sessions online using Zoom by a qualified therapist and a moderator.


In Brent, we are also delivering an awareness-raising and anti-stigma social movement that aims to empower young people by empowering them and their families to join in the discussion to transform child and adolescent mental health services.


We aim to tackle the causes of poor mental health and get a better understanding of various mental health problems, and explore different coping mechanisms. Whilst the pandemic is ongoing we are adhering to Government advice and face-to-face meetings have been transferred to digital and telephone sessions.









  • We run wellbeing webinars for Middlesex University students only
  • We facilitate 1-2-1 sessions, group sessions and webinars for people aged 18-25 - living, working or studying in Barnet.



  • We are a social movement that aims to raise awareness of children and young people's mental health and wellbeing as well as challenge the stigma associated with mental health in Brent. We aim to capture and champion the voice of the child. ​
  • Our young mental health champions work actively to promote positive mental health in their schools and communities, as well as working closely with NHS Brent to transform child and adolescent mental health services
  • Be Brave Be Bold: Our Covid-19 response project works with young people across primary and secondary schools to understand the experience of Brent children and young people during the pandemic and lockdown and develop a resilience toolkit for pupils joining secondary school in September 2021
  • We contribute to the Brent Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy and Transformation partnership.
  • Our work is governed by The Brent Young People Thrive Steering Group

At Young People Thrive, we have continued to deliver wellbeing webinars to schools, colleges and universities. All webinars are interactive and led by a trained therapist. The 60-minute interactive sessions seek to equip students and young people with tools and strategies to build resilience, increase self-awareness, and thus better manage their mental health. The topics that we cover include:  

  • Social anxiety.
