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.
