Our vision at Flourish Mentors is to offer support and help to ANY young woman (including non-binary) from the age of 16-25 years in the Brighton and Hove area. 

This will be a free service to young women and we want anyone to use our service, regardless of her background, problems and level of need.  All are welcome, problems big or small!

Why any young woman?

So many young people are facing mental health crises, especially in this lockdown era, and whilst there is often support for the most disadvantaged (which is great), there are a LOT of young women who fall between the cracks as their needs are too low for existing supports.

The Girlsguiding Girls' Attitude Survey (2020) reports:

"A third (33%) of girls and young women, aged 7-21, say they would like more help and support to find ways to enjoy themselves and relax.  This need rises to 44% the older young women get (7-21 years)."

Why Flourish Mentors?

We have created a wellbeing support programme based on the 7 pillars of wellbeing, which you can read more about on our website:    https://www.flourishmentors.com/ 

The 7 Pillars of Wellbeing

Flourish will assess each mentee along these seven pillars and offer her tailored services, according to her individual wellbeing needs:

How?

We have successfully recruited a group of women who will volunteer their time and though they are not therapy experts, they have lots of skills and support to offer. 

We seek a minimum of £5000 funding for outings including coffees and teas for the mentees and mentors, start-up costs and administration.  

We are grateful for any support you give!


What we offer?

One-to-one mentoring and workshops focused on the 7 pillars of well-being, including:

  • Relationships with friends, families and partners
  • Revealing your inner passions
  • Feeling better within yourself
  • Skills like CVs, drama, networking, uni applications
  • Learning how to speak up
  • Being okay with my own company
  • Finding your path, whatever that is!

We hope to help over 100 young women in the area in the next year.     

Our team is comprised of a secondary school drama teacher, a child and adolescent therapist and a graphic artist who are committed  to this mission!  

Please help us achieve our dream to help young women aspire and flourish!
