Our network of recovery-focussed Wellbeing Centres offer safe spaces to be yourself and get back on track through groups, workshops, activities and 1:1 emotional support.
Through an initial telephone assessment, we'll work with you to set goals for your time with us and find the the right courses to help you work towards them. We can also help signpost you to local services for any additional support needs, like housing, benefits, counselling, crisis support or other specific mental health needs.
Our support is always specific and personalised to you, but might include a combination of creative arts, active groups, mindfulness and useful specific short courses for anxiety, anger, self-esteem or life skills. Whatever challenges you may be facing in your life, we can help you build the confidence to manage and understand your symptoms.
You can self-refer yourself to the Wellbeing Centre if you are aged 18 or over, have a GP in the Winchester area and experience mild to moderate mental health problems like anxiety, stress, low mood or self esteem or depression.
If you are currently supported by a local Community Mental Health Team or Acute Mental Health Team, please speak to your Care Co-ordinator or other lead professional so they may refer you directly to us.
Our support is not counselling. Instead, we give you the tools to take action, learn how to manage your wellbeing and widen your network of support.
Along with the self-referral options above, we also accept:
CMHT and AMHT referrals require a risk assessment in addition to our Agency Referral Form. Our support can be offered to patients as an element within a wider care plan, but is not appropriate as a sole-replacement for secondary care.
For the safety of our team and service users our services are currently being delivered by phone, email and through web chat.
Workshops & Courses
We're using Zoom to deliver our useful courses on:
Decider Life Skills™
For those who can't access Zoom, we can also offer one-to-one telephone sessions based on some of these existing courses. We also run one-off workshops on a variety of wellbeing topics.
Digital Wellbeing Support
We're pleased to offer multi-award winning digital mental health and wellbeing service togetherall™, which provides peer and professional support, creative self-expression, evidence-based courses and tips for managing anxiety, positive thinking, smoking cessation and weight management.
We've also launched our monthly E-Zine, 'A Little Piece of Mind' which contains useful wellbeing tools, activities and tips.
Connecting With Others
Our popular discussion groups are also offered over Zoom, to allow people to share stories, ideas and insights into mental health. We also have a dedicated Young Persons Group for 18-25 year olds.
