Wandsworth & Westminster Mind provides person-centred recovery support as well as a range of popular activities, groups and programmes at our Tooting High Street Wellbeing Hub.
We will work with anyone living in Wandsworth who has been affected by mental illness to help you to improve your wellbeing, build your resilience and get more out of life by engaging meaningful and fulfilling activities in the community.
We will support you to identify your needs and aspirations and develop a plan of support and action to achieve them. You will receive one to one support and a menu of activities and services.
We work in partnership with our service users, volunteers, the council, health services, other providers and organisations to build a menu of services and activities to support wellbeing including:
We are working in partnership with Enable:Leisure and Culture to provide physical fitness and support programmes for people with serious mental health problems who also have health and fitness difficulties.
Participants are offered 12 weeks of one to one physical activity and exercise in order to get fitter, feel better and to improve their overall health and wellbeing. People are supported to move on to and sustain other longer term physical activities and programmes.
People who take part in the Active wellbeing programme achieve measurable improvements in their physical fitness and mental wellbeing.
We run regular friendly self-help groups in our Wellbeing Hub and at Springfield Hospital for anyone who experiences unusual perceptions or beliefs or who hears voices, has visions or has done so in the past.
All Unusual Perceptions Groups are centred around the needs and aspirations of their members, offering a safe supportive space for people to talk about their experiences, exchange ideas and share ways reducing distress, gaining control and coping better.
The Wednesday Club is an evening social group for people using WW Mind services.
We offer a programme of regular structured activities, social events, meetings and group meals throughout the year with additional monthly Saturday outings which we run in partnership with other local community organisations.
The club runs from 4pm - 8.30pm every Wednesday and generally takes place or starts off from the Wellbeing Hub in Tooting (from 9 June onward). Its main purpose is to provide social engagement, connection and support for people but also to foster peer support and service user participation.
To get a better idea of what is on offer please see schedule of upcoming activities.
SW18 to 35 Club is a peer support group for people between the ages of 18 and 35 with experience of mental illness who want to improve their confidence and build their social networks by finding, developing and sharing regular community activities. These might include regular classes or workshops, visits to new places of interest, and social events.
The group provides a regular safe space for people to meet, chat and offer support to each other when needed. The focus is on enabling individuals to overcome mental health issues and live fuller lives, which are more integrated within the community. We plan a different activity for every session, each one aimed at trying something new or going somewhere different, and each one offering potential for continued participation within the community.
Currently, the group meets monthly, but we are working on making meetings more frequent.
