Dorset Mind offers a range of safe, wellbeing support services that can be tailored and mixed to meet your needs. They aim to develop and improve positive mental wellbeing for everyone.
Group support consists of talking groups that encourages led-discussions and activity based groups that help get people moving. Our groups are led by professional facilitators and you are able to access peer-support from people that might have similar experiences to you.
One-to-one support includes active monitoring, befriending, counselling and mentoring. This kind of support is for anyone who is ready to take active steps to work towards recovery. This support aims to improve your confidence and increase your self-esteem.
In addition, we’ve compiled a whole host of useful mental health resources and signposting to help you find the support you deserve. Our self-care resources are also at your fingertips, so that you can take steps to improve your own wellbeing.
New online support
We understand how hard this time can be and we have created an online group timetable for you. We’ve had to alter some of the times to be able to do this, so please check out the dates and what each group provides on the group’s page.
If you are interested in attending any of our online groups, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you direct and support you to log in to these groups.
