City and Hackney Wellbeing Network

Targeted programmes for mental and physical wellbeing

The City and Hackney Wellbeing Network, offers high-quality free support to help people prevent the onset of mental health problems and alleviate issues such as stress, anxiety and low mood. We also offer support to adults with severe and enduring mental health conditions.

A dynamic and diverse partnership of eleven specialist mental health providers, the Wellbeing Network empowers people towards better mental and physical wellbeing. We offer an exciting range of groups and courses to support people to improve their mental wellbeing, physical health, social networks and daily living skills.

One named ‘network navigator’ will be available to ensure that people receive the right kind of support at the right time and that support is well-coordinated.

WEEK 1: Make your own eye pillow An Eye Pillow is typically a small bag filled with flax seeds. It is placed over your eyes when you lie on your back applying light pressure on the eyeballs. It is a humble yet powerful healing tool, especially when it comes to balancing the nervous system. In this 2 hour workshop you will learn more about the benefits of using an eye pillow. It can be used anytime you feel anxious , stressed or perhaps to help you feel more grounding. It is also a natural sleeping aid. You will make your own eye pillow by choosing your own soft fabric and filling it with flax seeds and gorgeous dried Lavender. It is also a great accessory for all the Yoga practitioners out there! WEEK 2: Make your own Herbal Tea. Tea is a perfectly simple way to access the health benefits of herbs. The quiet ritual of preparing and sipping a cup of tea is a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful practice. Creating your own tea blends is easy and much less expensive than buying some of the pre-made bags at the store. In this 2 hour workshop, you will allow your senses to explore the various aroma and taste of different restorative herbs. To help you we have created a herb personality profile to help you find the herb that resonates the most with you. Create your own blend and take it home with you.
