Description

Health in Mind offers a wide range of groups, workshops and courses that are based on the five ways to wellbeing. Groups are meeting online and in the community venues.

Groups are delivered by experienced Support and Development Workers as well as Peer Support Workers who have lived experience of mental health issues

They are open to you if you would like to improve your mental health and wellbeing. The groups provide a safe space to learn more about mental health and to develop new strategies for wellbeing.

Many also support people to use their own experiences to help others and some offer the opportunity to develop a sense of wellbeing through being in nature and conversation.

You can find out more about the five ways to wellbeing here.
