At present their is capacity to mentor two student volunteers at any one time, if their are more candidates then their are posts, then interviews will be held.


"I decided to do my placement at Caring Minds because I wanted to gain experience in both mental health and working with young people. During my time there, I feel I have grown both personally and professionally and have been able to make some definite decisions about my future career. I have had the opportunity to be involved in many different aspects of a company and believe I have made a real difference in the lives of young people"
