Group Support

At times we can all feel overwhelmed with our problems and feel alone. Sometimes it’s reassuring to hear that there are other people who are going through similar difficulties in life.

We have a range of options available, please select the one that is relevant to you.

Ways 2 Wellbeing

Would you like to improve your mental health? Do you feel ready to make some changes?

At Hull and East Yorkshire Mind we can help. We use tried and tested methods to provide a personalised plan to improve your mental health. The groups will allow you to meet others experiencing the same problems, at the same time as learning skills that will help you to cope and improve your mental wellbeing.

‘Ways 2 Wellbeing’ is a 6 week programme designed to improve your mental health and wellbeing and provide you with the tools you need to help keep you well. You will create your own action plan and identify your own personal goals using an evidence based system. We will help you to keep track of the positive changes you make. Each session includes time to discuss interesting topics and also time to make friends over a cuppa and a biscuit.

We have chosen topics on a range of common mental health problems and lifestyle issues which may or may not be connected to poor mental health.

Some of the topics we cover are:

  • Confidence building
  • Anxiety management
  • Sleep hygiene
  • Self-esteem
  • How to have fun
  • The benefits of volunteering

Art Group

Would you like to improve your mental health and wellbeing by expressing yourself at our art group?

Our art group, offers a six week rolling programme. People coming to the group have the opportunity to express emotions and feelings using art as a means of expression.

The aim of the workshop is to start to be more emotionally aware and use art activity to reduce stress and anxiety. You don’t need to have done these activities before, or have any particular skills or knowledge.

Different people will have different experiences of art groups, but they all aim to:

  • give you a safe time and place with someone who won’t judge you
  • help you make sense of things and understand yourself better
  • help you resolve complicated feelings, or find ways to live with them
  • help you communicate and express yourself, which might include feelings or experiences you find hard to put into words.

If you would like more information please get in touch on 01482 240200 or email [email protected]

Please note this is only available to Hull residents ONLY.
