Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies have joined with the Centre’s Mental Health Community Connectors and East London Foundation Trust to run monthly sessions to talk about all things mental health.

The online sessions create an open but safe space to connect with others and for people to talk and to hear others share their own challenges with mental health.

As part of the session, Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies runs an instructive session on aspects of mental health such as mindfulness with an interactive section to help people develop coping skills.

A final check-in part of each session helps people to talk about how they might use the tools they have learnt. Participants are also introduced to community groups and activities with other like-minded people to continue supporting good mental health.

Upcoming sessions

Wednesday 25th May 2022: 1pm until 2.30pm.
