Who We Are
Based in London Borough of Redbridge, Free Your Mind’s mission is to support individuals that have experienced childhood Domestic Abuse and mental health issues as a result.
Through our support sessions we aim to give children and young people the tools they need to look after their own happiness and wellbeing, plus promote the importance of having healthy relationships.
Those who have grown up with Domestic Violence, Domestic Abuse and mental illness, know and have seen life in ways others won’t, they know a pain and perspective so many never will. Free Your Mind is here to empower children and young people – helping them overcome their trauma so they can live a fulfilled life.
