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.

Tree of Life is a narrative therapy approach, based on the idea that we all make sense of our experiences through the stories we tell about our lives. It is a tool for all of us to reflect on our lives, where we have come from and where we are going. It is an opportunity to identify and share our skills, abilities and knowledge about our own life and is particularly useful to help move on from feeling negative about yourself and your future. The tree, a powerful symbol across many cultures, is used to symbolize different parts of the story. You will draw your tree and share your experience with the group.
