Free, confidential advice in a safe environment
Every Thursday between 4:00pm and 7:00pm, young people learn how to become peer mentors and support other young people while raising awareness about well-being.
Since July 2013, the Gr@nd has successfully trained young-people to become peer mentors as part of the H4U Youth-led project.
The H4U project is there to help young people tackle any challenges they may face, from relationship advice to bullying or even taking the next step in your education.
As well as winning two fantastic awards from Gravesham Council and Kent County Council, the Gr@nd’s H4U committee volunteers have planned many community events to raise awareness of mental health and help young people to be more resilient to the pressures of school life.
A committee member of the H4U project said:
“I volunteered with the Grand because of my history of mental health and depression. I didn’t want other young people to be in the same situation. There was no-one for me so I want to make a difference by spreading the word that there is help and as peer mentors we can make a difference.”
No matter what’s on your mind, big or small, the H4U project gives you a place to express your feelings in a confidential space without being judged

If you want to become a peer mentor and help support other young people to talk about their feelings or hear more about the H4U project, just call Dill on 01474 32 01 23 or email Diljeet.Nota@thegrand.org.uk
