The Wellbeing Centre

WELLBEING CENTRE

What is it?

The Wellbeing Centre offers a number of different groups and activities which are co-designed and run in partnership with ‘Peer Tutors’ who have used Mind services themselves and have lived experience of mental health difficulties.

We aim to support you to:

  • Manage and reduce anxiety.
  • Manage and reduce depression.
  • Improve wellbeing and self-esteem.
  • Feel part of a community.

Groups typically run on Thursdays between 10am-5pm and vary between creative, practical and discussion groups including:

  • Art based groups (from painting to poetry)
  • Self-management (self-care, relationships and housekeeping)
  • Discussion groups and training (CV writing, taboo topics, LGBT discussion)

We believe in ‘Experts by Experience’ who, having used our services, are best placed to guide it. Our groups are run by professional facilitators and volunteers, with training provided to those interested in becoming a peer tutor.

Who is it for?

The Wellbeing Centre is for those who:

  • Are 18 or over.
  • Live in the City of London or Hackney.
  • Are able to manage their own time.
  • Are able and willing to attend groups.

Please note that we do not provide one-to-one support.

How to get it?

Interested in volunteering as a facilitator?

We welcome volunteers who are currently training or qualified practitioners interested in co-production and peer support. You will need to provide an Enhanced DBS Check and be available for 6 weeks to run 2-hour sessions on a weekly basis.
