Mental Health and Well-being Activities Programme

About the programme:

York Mind in partnership with Converge, St Nicks, York Carers Centre, Sunshine Changing Lanes, York LGBT Forum and Kindlewoods have an exciting, new, opportunity to deliver a bespoke range of activities to support individuals’ mental health and well-being.

The Activities Programme is funded by City of York Council for three years and reflects its commitment and investment in mental health provision and the early intervention and prevention agenda.

Activities will run across the year, with staggered start dates and include guided learning such as conflict resolution, dealing with loneliness and isolation, vocational courses, facilitated peer support, green exercise, woodland well-being sessions, social events and support groups.

York Mind will deliver guided learning including Mindfulness, Assertiveness and Hatha Yoga, well-being and social activities including mindful walking, themed coffee mornings and a weekly drop in café.

An important part of the programme is that participants will be able to select those activities that they feel will support them the most, based on their own interests, needs and goals.

 Who can access:

  • Individuals aged 18 plus
  • Participants must be resident within the City of York
  • Those who identify with mental health and well-being issues and wish to access support


How to enrol:

York Mind will manage the single point of access for participants to enrol on the programme.
