"The Hub offers me a fantastic service to interact which has stopped my social isolation and has saved my life many times. We don’t look down on each other because we’ve got a mental illness; we just have a little natter with friends. ” 

Projects

For many of our clients, Mental Health Resource is not just life-changing but life-saving. Every year we support over 1000 people across our 5 key projects. 

Support during lockdown

During lockdown, we have:

  • quickly adapted all 5 projects to offer telephone and online support, with no cost to our clients. 
  • made over 800 contacts with our Hub, Serenity Cafe & Reachout clients to support them with their wellbeing.
  • started to provide face to face support for 8 clients per week at the Kitchen Table in conjunction with Crossways Community.
  • worked in partnership with other local charities to signpost our clients, eg, Nourish, Age UK and Highlands House.

Working towards our values.

Preventing social isolation

There are no obstacles to accessing our services as clients can self-refer or be referred. and all activities are completely free. All of our wellbeing activities are completely free.

In a recent consultation, 82% of our Hub clients said they feel more connected to the community after having accessed our services.

Providing long term support

There is no time limit to our services which means people can access us for as long as they need.

Some clients now volunteer to run peer support groups. They are invaluable for helping others build strong friendships.

26% of Hub clients said they have used the Hub for 10 years or more

Helping people reach their goals

We focus on our client's individual needs and they are encouraged to develop a personal progress plan based on their goals.

We do what we can to support our clients to reach their goals and even gain nationally recognised qualifications. People like Chris who now runs our Mindwell Art group.

70% of our Hub clients feel they can now manage their long-term condition better having learnt a range of valuable tools and skills, while 88% feel an improvement in their mental wellbeing. 

Working in the community

To reach as many clients as possible, several of our wellbeing activities are based out in the community, including art groups, creative writing, IT and Reachout projects.

We deliver training workshops including Mental Health First Aid Training to help people recognise signs of mental illness and how they can support.

We now run 'Time 4 U', a befriending project which skills up 5 Volunteers per year to support the housebound with their mental health.
