Mental Health Resource: We believe in improved mental wellbeing for everyone

"Mental Health Resource is a sanctuary for the confused, the difficult and the lonely. It stops me getting isolated and keeps me on the straight and narrow". Richard, Hub Client

Richard suffers with anxiety and depression and has been coming to us for 23 years. Here at Mental Health Resource, we help people like Richard, who often have complex, enduring mental health conditions, who struggle with low self-esteem and lack skills to manage stressful life events.

Our approved Instructor delivers workshops which teach people how to identify, understand and help someone who may be experiencing a mental health issue. Specifically our courses include:
