Amazon Wishlists

There's now an exciting new way to support our mental health services directly with Amazon Wishlists!

We have invited every service to put together a wish list of items that would help in running the services and supporting our service users. These range from stationary to games and gazebos. 

The services with wish lists currently include The Lighthouse crisis service, Remind dementia service and our Children and Young People services.

Any items purchased from these wishlists will be delivered directly to the service and put into use immediately, this allows us to access items that current funding may not currently cover.

Children and Young People Wishlist

Solent Mind support over 40,000 people a year many of whom come through our young people's programmes. These items have been selected by the CYP team to use within their group and one to one sessions. Games are a great ice breaker with young people.

David's story

I had been on different medications, tried different talking therapies but I still wasn’t getting anywhere. I was still ashamed and afraid to attend a group with strangers, however, I knew I needed to take control of my life, and that things needed to change. Solent Recovery College was my last hope to try and get better.

Rebecca's story

The first time I used The Lighthouse service I was really struggling that night. I was so nervous that it took me over half an hour to send the first text, but when I did it was the best thing I had done in a long time.

Annabell's story

Before meeting with my Solent Mind Employment Advisor, I genuinely felt that I had nothing to offer. She helped me to realise that I was capable of a lot more than I had given myself credit for.
