Overview

Service description

There are Neighbourhood Mental Health Cafés spread around Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, run by trained and supportive staff, who are there to listen and provide the practical support you may need when you need it most.

If you’re struggling with your mental health, we can help you make plans to enable you to feel safer, as well as explaining who you can turn to for help in your local community.

Alongside emotional support, we’ll also work with you to help you manage your own mental health so that you can start to feel more in control.

Everyone’s different, so we’ll give you a choice of ways you might like to receive support from us and you can decide what’s best for you. For example, you may want:

  • A safe and relaxing space where you can be yourself and take part in gentle activities
  • One-to-one support with a member of our team to explore ways to cope and how to manage your mental health
  • Practical advice and information about other services that might be helpful to you for longer-term support
