Mental Health Support Hubs
The support hubs can advise and help with access to services and support in the local area. They can also provide information about specialist services provided in some areas.
Support hubs are currently offering telephone and online consultation, with access to some online groups.
Where possible, and depending on current Covid-19 guidelines, support hubs offer:
- Advice and information about mental health and other services in the local area
- One to one support to set goals, review progress and discuss issues
- Regular group sessions to provide the opportunity to get advice from a member of staff, to socialise with other people in an informal atmosphere and get involved in activities.
- Learning and development programme led by staff and trained peer mentors. Sessions will help in setting goals around improving mental and physical well-being and supporting personal development.
- Social activities programme with informal leisure opportunities to promote physical and mental wellbeing led by staff, users and supporters.
- Access to a peer supporter
We also run training for people in West Sussex, as well as volunteers and staff, around mental health. In addition we have an anti-stigma and awareness raising project called Open Minds.
Who is this for?
Anyone experiencing or caring for someone with mental health issues of any sort whether these are new, long-term or someone has a mental illness diagnosis, they can offer support directly or advise where to find information and further help.
