*Our wellbeing programmes are currently taking place virtually and anyone wanting support with their mental health can participate
Wellbeing is about feeling good on the inside and on the outside. It's something we all need to think about, especially during these difficult times, and we can provide you with the tools to help you get back on track. Everyone has their own way of dealing with the day to day pressures that life brings, whether that is baking, reading, being at one with nature or playing sport. Here at Mayfield we understand that each person is different, and that is what makes our wellbeing services so special.
Mayfield Nurseries Wellbeing Centre is friendly and welcoming with an informal atmosphere, making it a great place to meet others. Our programmes are designed to help individuals towards recovery. We also offer private and confidential emotional support, and one-to-one help to raise aspirations, goals and ambitions. Our aim is to develop and reinforce people’s strengths while they try to achieve their goals in their journey towards recovery.
You don't have to have a diagnosed mental health issue to access our programmes. You could be experiencing mental health issues, wanting to increase physical, social and community activity, develop new skills or want to learn more about overall wellbeing.
