MindFull is part of The BB Group, a charity which uses technology for social good. We build communities of socially mediated support, connecting people in need with those who can help. We inspire social action and create long-term change on an individual and societal level. Our core programmes include BeatBullying, an international bullying prevention charity working and campaigning to make bullying unacceptable, and FutureYou, a national programme enabling young people to overcome the barriers they face in accessing and succeeding in education, employment and training.
Using our 10 years of knowledge and experience, and with lots of help from our youth panel, we have now launched MindFull, a new service aiming to transform mental health service provision for young people aged 11-17, who are looking to access real-time support around, and information, advice and guidance on, their emotional wellbeing and mental health. Developed not only out of a clear need for better access to early intervention and prevention services, but also on evidence from the young people we work with, MindFull helps to improve young people's emotional resilience, and develop positive coping mechanisms to equip them with the tools they need to reach their full potential, to be happy, and to be healthy.
MindFull offers one of the largest online counselling services, using a pioneering framework of intervention that includes robust Safeguarding procedures. Through the provision of Tier 2 counselling services, MindFull reduces the prolonged suffering experienced by young people who are currently left on waiting lists for often extensive periods of time, enabling them to access the help they need, whenever they need it, wherever they are.
The BB Group's model of intervention is the number one source of online support for children and young people in schools in the UK. By using a medium that young people feel confident and able to use, MindFull aims to be a part of a much needed attitudinal shift towards emotional wellbeing and mental health support, through the modernisation of services.
