Changes to support during the Covid-19 outbreak
Please note, that our existing services have mostly been replaced by telephone or video meetings until further notice.
We recognise that with so many people experiencing uncertain times, isolation, loss of income and contact with friends and family, we have a key role to play in helping them manage their mental health and wellbeing. We are doing everything we can to design new services to help as many people as we can.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need support with your wellbeing and we will do what we can to help you.
MindOut is a safe, confidential and accepting space for LGBTIQ+ 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.
