As part of our Good Life Service we offer a number of community initiatives aimed at encouraging community connectivity and increasing wellbeing skills. These ordinarily take place in cafes and other locations at the heart of our communities. Good Mood cafes are informal ‘get togethers’ designed to connect individuals to other like-minded people within their communities; offer wellbeing support and share interests and skills. Our Open Door calm spaces offer somewhere to turn if you’re looking for a bit of space and tranquillity.
These sessions offer guidance on self-help techniques which can help you to ‘ground yourself’ and feel better – both in that moment and in the future.
However, we are now bringing these directly to you to participate in from home using Zoom video calls. You can sign up to join the virtual sessions detailed below by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us on 0300 303 4363. We’ll then send you a private link and password which you can use to safely and securely join.
Our Sanctuary service remains open for dedicated telephone support for those in mental health crisis and is only accessed via the NHS First response Service on telephone 111 option 2.
