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.

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.
