City and Hackney Wellbeing Network

Holistic support to improve physical and mental health

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.

Writing is known to help you process emotions, make sense of experiences, improve mood and help in managing mental health. During this 6 week Writing for Wellbeing workshop you will be guided through structured writing activities and games to enable you to create and share a mixture of fictional and true stories of your own experiences and ideas. The groups are kept small to help create a more intimate and supportive environment. All abilities are welcome - the goal isn't to create a perfectly worded masterpiece, the goal is to enable a creative way to communicate and to understand your own thoughts and emotions whilst having fun.
