Changes to our service provision due to Covid-19
this page was last updated on: 21/9/20
Due to the current Covid-19 crisis we have implemented a variety of measures which differ from service to service. All members and clients who use our services are being contacted by phone about this.
There will be staff at our premises but please do not come in person to Mind in Camden as it is still not open to the public at this time. If you need to speak to us, please call our office number 020 7911 0822 and leave a message – we will call you back as soon as we can.
Please click here for some useful resources.
We have started to change how we are providing services at the current time which will vary from service to service – please check back here for any updates, and keep safe.
We are sorry but there is no availability for psychotherapy for the time being. When we have slots available, this page will be immediately updated. Please note we are unable to keep a waiting list.
Group therapy – Psychological Health Group
Please get in touch to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining this longer term weekly therapy group. Please see our page here for more information about the group. There is a short waiting list at the moment, but please register your interest.
Online peer support groups
For people who use our peer support groups on a drop-in basis: these groups are not meeting in our building. These groups are now all online – we have Anxiety group, Hearing Voices groups, Mood Music group, and until our building reopens, Creative Writing group. Please note our Creative Writing group is available to everybody at the present time, although places in the group are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Recent changes to the groups:
- Low Mood Group has had a change of format, based on feedback from our members and group facilitators. We are calling this new group: “Mood Music”. This is a group for members to share a piece of music which expresses their current mood and give space for others in the group to respond with their thoughts and feelings. We hope this group will be a creative way of expressing emotion, using music as a springboard.
- The online ‘My Beliefs Peer Support group’ will sadly be no longer running. However, we have an exciting new group starting soon. More details to follow, so watch this space!
If you would like to attend any of these, please call on 0207 241 8996 or email email@example.com. The exception to this is the Young Person’s Hearing Voices group – please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come to this.
