New wellbeing hub to open in Chelmsford

With You In Mind, a social, inclusive, wellbeing hub for Chelmsford is set to open this month.

The hub will include:

  • Inclusive activity sessions for people with low impact mental health issues
  • A network of health professionals to signpost you to other services
  • Group Activities
  • 1-2-1 Hub
  • Volunteer

Group Activities

Our activity co-ordinators and mental health first aiders at the centre will be on hand delivering a variety of activities including; badminton, table tennis, group exercise classes, led walks, relaxation sessions, an area for board games, mindful colouring and workshops. You can also suggest other activities you would like us to include in the programme. We want you to feel part of a group and be social with people who will be supportive and empathise with your needs and build your confidence.

1-2-1 Hub

The hub will provide an area to speak openly to our support team who can help with signposting you to services. The team will be on hand before and after sessions to speak confidentially over day to day worries you may have. The team provide a supportive network to make you feel at ease and help move you in the right direction to coping and help you get back to your usual self.

Volunteer

Feel as though you can give something back? Once you have completed your programme why not come along and support other people at the sessions? This will be a great opportunity to support your peers and help deliver activities as part of the programme. What better way to empower other people and develop your own skills and continue your journey to wellbeing.
