For Arabic and Farsi (Persian) speaking communities in Kensington & Chelsea, Queens Park and Paddington
This service is an integral part of the wider Community Living Well Service, which is delivered by the Talking Therapies & Wellbeing Service at Wandsworth & Westminster Mind.
It's personalised to suit the linguistic and cultural needs of Iranian, Moroccan and other Arabic speaking communities by providing equitable experience of talking therapy, learning through workshops, and engagement in groups to enhance their wellbeing.
It aims to integrate adults who speak Arabic and Farsi (Persian) into primary care mental health services, by providing one-to-one counselling and group sessions around mental health & emotional wellbeing in their native languages.
We accept referrals from health professionals. People are also able to self-refer*.
The leading priority of this service is to ensure that people’s access to talking therapies is not stalled by their ethnicity, culture or faith, and to normalise the concept of mental health problems so that the communities can openly talk about it and not ignore it.
