MindOut is a safe, confidential and accepting space for LGBTQ+ people experiencing mental health issues. It offers recovery-based peer and staff support.
Each session involves a guided relaxation or mindfulness exercise, time to share experiences and concerns, followed by discussion workshops based on group members’ requests.
Discussions cover a diverse range of topics, for example:
- Coming out to friends and family;
- Developing self-compassion and building self-esteem;
- Managing anxiety;
- Mental health conditions;
- Recovery-based coping skills – like helpful ways of thinking, relaxation and mindfulness.
