Mind Your Way

A mental health problem can feel as bad as (or worse than) any physical illness – just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean you should ignore it. Mind Your Way helps you to look after your mental health and wellbeing and provides a safe and confidential space to talk. The Mind Your Way team provide counselling and mentoring  – both online and face to face, as well as small groups around the county.
To access online counselling, mentoring and forums sign up to Kooth here.

For further information contact at Young People Cornwall , or for counselling contact at Kooth.


Volunteering is a great way to build confidence and gain new skills which can be transferred to the workplace or further education. It allows you to meet new people and have fun whilst giving back to your community. Through Timebank Your Way we’ll even reward you for the time you put in through credits. Every hour volunteered equals one time credit, which you can save up and exchange for rewards such as entry into local attractions or shopping vouchers.
