What do we offer? 

Service update: To ensure the safety of our members, staff and volunteers, the Healthy Minds Community Programme has suspended all of its fact-to-face services for the time being, but we are far from inactive. Over the past three months, we have worked together with the Camden Resilience Network to develop the Healthy Minds: Digital Collective your one-stop-shop for the very best FREE online events, activities, courses, peer support groups and socials the borough has to offer.

About the Healthy Minds Community Programme: 

In ordinary times, the Healthy Minds Community programme is a growing collaboration of partners and participants brought together by Mind in Camden to create exciting members-only offers from and for the Camden community. These offers are completely free to access and typically include Museum tours, workshops, health and fitness classes, educational opportunities and creative courses. All our activities are designed to promote wellbeing, community and connection.   

Since lockdown, we have moved all our services online and are currently offering a range of peer support groups for people who identify as having anxiety, low mood, hearing voices or beliefs other people find unusual. We are also running weekly socials such as our writing group, film club and our popular virtual coffee morning. We continue to deliver creative workshops and, we can even deliver arts and craft materials that you need for the workshops directly to your door!

We are accepting new referrals (more details below) and invite you to join our ever-growing community. Upon joining, you will have access to all of our online offers. Once lockdown has ended and our usual programme has resumed, you will automatically become a fully-fledged Healthy Minds member and have access to all of our offers for a full year. 

Don't want to register with us but still looking for free offers? Look no further, the Digital Collective has got you covered.
