Mental Health & Wellbeing Activities Programme

York Mind in partnership with Converge, Kyra, York Racial Equality Network, Survive, Sunshine Changing Lanes, York LGBT Forum, The Rowntree Society and Kindlewoods delivers a range of mental health and well-being activities.

The model of delivery is based on the ethos that mental health and well-being is supported and maintained by a combination of activities. These activities fall under three pathways; Learning and Development, Well-being and Social, with the underpinning principles of Connect, Grow and Hope.

The ethos and values of Connect, Grow and Hope aims to support individual’s well-being and recovery journey by creating opportunities for social interaction, emotional support and facilitate opportunities to build wider and more sustainable networks of support, with both peers and local services. For more information about the programme contact York Mind as the single access point on 01904 643364 or
