What is Mental Wellbeing?
All of our activities are based on the Five Ways To Wellbeing and are designed to boost mood and improve mental wellbeing, reduce loneliness and isolation, and create connections between people.
With many different ways to boost our mood and improve our mental and physical wellbeing we know that different things interest each of us. That’s why we aim to have a mix of different activities always on offer, so that everyone will find something that suits their needs. What’s more, all of our Mental Wellbeing activities are free to attend.
It is our vision that by providing group activities and courses that focus on improving wellbeing, boosting mood, and learning about mental health, less people will find themselves at a stage where they are struggling with their mental health.

We’re encouraged to eat at least ﬁve fruit and veg a day to take care of our physical health, but what about our mental health?

Interested in Volunteering?
Our Mental Wellbeing groups and activities depend on the support of local volunteers who are passionate about improving mental wellbeing in their communities. Our volunteers help support people attending our groups and lead friendly MindSpace walks in their local parks, for instance.
Mental Wellbeing Partnerships
The Mental Wellbeing Services programme uses a partnership delivery model, meaning we work in partnership with local organisations big and small to deliver our wide and varied range of wellbeing activities.
We work together with our local community and in partnership with various agencies including voluntary and statutory organisations and local individuals and community groups. We believe that this is the best way to combine our areas of expertise and create services to be proud of.
