We run a range of group activities and training courses, to help on your road to recovery. We provide support to enable you to manage your mental health problems. Also you can come along to the Centre and express your creative side with our art & pottery or jewellery-making sessions, learn some relaxation techniques, join us in the garden or get out and about with our walking group. We also have something for those of you who love films or music or books.
We have a popular Men’s Group, an Over 30s or Under 30s group.
We run an established Asian Women’s and BME service to support people with mental health needs with an eye on cultural needs.
Our Community Engagement Worker (CEW) also works with a range of people from different cultures in our area.
We also have a Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender CEW who can offer support, raise awareness and offer training to individuals and carers/supporters.
We offer a number of trips and breaks throughout the year, providing an excellent way of helping you branch out and explore new surroundings and extend your comfort zone with help from our staff and volunteers. Lasting friendships are formed and self esteem is often raised through these activities.
