Mental Health Support

We invite Ukrainians in Birmingham to take part in focus groups!

Mental health is such an important aspect of our overall well being, and it can have a significant impact on the way we feel, think, and act. It is important to recognise the early warning signs and symptoms of mental health problems, such as changes in eating or sleeping patterns, feelings of hopelessness or helplessness, and difficulty performing daily tasks. Seeking help and support from mental health services can be challenging, but it is often the first step to healing and recovery. See our Mental Health Resources List.

5 Tips for Mental Wellbeing & Your Wellbeing Plan 

There are various support services available, including crisis services, advocacy, bereavement support, addiction and dependency support, and LGBTQIA+ mental health support, among others. It is also essential to address how mental health problems can impact other aspects of our lives, such as housing, money worries, and unemployment. Finding the right support and services for your mental health needs can make a significant difference in your well-being.

Community mental health services can also play a crucial role in delivering care for those with mental health and wellbeing needs. Our mission is to empower individuals to take control of their health and wellbeing through preventative interventions, promoting positive mental health, and self-management. We believe that everyone in this country should feel empowered to take control of their physical, mental, and emotional well-being, ultimately enabling them to overcome difficulties and achieve their goals in life. We hope to inspire individuals to become their own healers, live fulfilling lives, and educate their loved ones on the importance of nurturing their own health and wellbeing despite adversities.

Women’s monthly art workshop Outside the Box

Description: Embrace a transformative journey with us as we invite women, with a special dedication to our Ukrainian friends, although women of all backgrounds are warmly welcomed to join our journey to wellbeing. Our emphasis is on integration, nurturing your creativity, self-care, well-being, and the exploration of your emotions through the universal language of art.

What makes our sessions truly special is that no artistic experience is required – we welcome everyone. 

Our primary goals are to ignite your creative spark, empower self-care, and foster a deeper connection with your emotions as well as integration with others. Through the use of art’s universal language, including lines, colours, patterns, and forms, we offer a space for self-expression and personal growth.

Join us on this enriching path of self-discovery, where we come together weekly to explore, create, and connect in a supportive community. 

This is an opportunity to embrace your inner self and prioritise your well-being, all while utilising the universal language of art. We invite you to join us on this transformative journey toward self-expression, understanding, and unity.
