Approximately 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime and this can also affect family and friends – Mind in Tower Hamlets and Newham are on a mission to make sure no one feels alone and are able to access support when they need it the most.
Mind in Tower Hamlets and Newham are committed to our community and we are constantly working to improve the lives of those affected by mental health. We are pioneering a community response to improve mental health and wellbeing within our area.
With the help and support from people with lived experience of mental health and local organisations we have developed an exciting new project called ‘Safe Space Community’. We hope to create a wonderful network of ‘safe spaces’ where members of the community who are experiencing mental health and emotional needs will be welcomed, safe from stigma and judgment and allowed the time and sanctuary when they need it.
