Community Minds

Community involvement provides a sense of belonging

Community Minds

Being part of a community can have a positive effect on mental health and wellbeing. Community involvement provides a sense of belonging and helps tackle social isolation. Our Community groups provide opportunity for peer support and can bring extra meaning and purpose to everyday life.
