- Our Evolve Members
Evolve is a peer support group for young people aged 16-30, mainly advertised for people dealing with mental health issues, trauma or distress. Evolve is facilitated by people with their own lived experiences.
Evolve was founded by Director Nikki Mattocks who publicly spreads the word to the world about their own mental health battles. Evolve is managed by Robyn Wimble, who spends their spare time spreading Mental Health awareness and managing our social media.
Formerly run in Croydon, London, we are currently holding online sessions during the pandemic. These sessions are run every Wednesday on our community Discord 7:30-8:30 pm (UK Time). During these sessions not only do we talk about our life struggles but we make friends, share advice and support each other in a safe and confidential place. Everyone is welcome regardless of background, sexuality, disability, ethnicity, gender, and faith.
Evolve has been running since September 2014, and has helped people to talk about their mental health, overcome personal challenges, gain confidence and be happy with being their most authentic selves.
No matter what you are going through, you do not need to go through it alone.
