Do you live in Camden?
Would you like to take part in a community-based course, workshop or activity? Or perhaps you would like to get fitter, or share your skills and experiences through a volunteer scheme to help others?
Healthy Minds offers free access to a wide range of activities to help you discover an activity that’s enjoyable and just right for you. And, if you need a hand deciding, a Healthy Minds navigator or sports buddy will help.
About the Service
Healthy Minds is a Mind in Camden Project aimed at supporting adults who may be struggling with their mental health, feeling isolated or disconnected with their community, or would like some additional support in finding out what their local area has to offer them.
The Programme has partnered with a range of different community providers to offer our participants free access to workshops, courses and group activities, to support people living in Camden to improve their wellbeing. We can offer 1:1 sessions with trained Navigators to help people to identify their interests, uncover passions and to plan and pursue their goals and 1:1 sessions with sports buddied to support your physical fitness goals.
Who’s the service for?
Healthy Minds welcomes all adults 18+ who are Camden Borough residents.
Unfortunately we cannot accept out of borough referrals unless you have a registered GP in Camden.
What happens after I’ve registered?
Once registered with Healthy Minds participants will have access to up to 12 months of activities which you can use to tailor your own personal schedule. For those who are interested in furthering your education or skills, we can provide financial support for courses at The Mary Ward Adult Education Centre.
How do I refer?
You can refer yourself or refer on someone else’s behalf.
Step 1: Contact us via phone or email to make your referral. If you’re in the area you’re welcome to drop in.
Step 2: We will arrange a suitable time for you to come in to Mind in Camden to meet with a member of our team. This is called an Initial Meeting.
Step 3: In the Initial Meeting we will tell you more about the programme and what support we can offer, assess suitability, complete relevant paperwork and answer any questions you may have. This meeting usually takes about an hour.
Step 4: You’re registered! You are now able to book on to workshops and courses for free. We will keep you informed on what is happening locally and connect you with additional support if required.
