Mental Health & Wellbeing

Mental health is a concept related to the social and emotional wellbeing of an individual. At the Croydon Health and Wellbeing Space, we are a safe space to come and chat about concerns around your mental health. Our support workers will assess the appropriate level of support for you and help to link you in with these services. We also run various groups here at the Croydon Health and Wellbeing Space to help people develop skills to cope with common mental health problems, click here to keep up to date with what’s on.

Are you feeling worried?

Feeling worried is a completely normal part of everyday life.
Worry is the reaction we have to the uncertainty of what is going to happen next or what is currently happening, whether that’s now, in the next few minutes, tomorrow, or even in the next couple of months.

Are you feeling down?

Have you noticed that you’ve been feeling down? It’s normal to feel this way from time to time, but if you feel like getting through each day is becoming a struggle, there are steps you can take and services available to help.

Talking Therapies

Croydon Talking Therapies is a free and confidential service for adults who are registered with a Croydon GP, who would like to improve how they feel and sleep better. We also help people who are experiencing stress, depression, panic attacks and anxiety as well as people who have experienced trauma or have long-term health conditions. You can self-refer by filling in the online referral form or calling the service. Telephone: 0203 228 4040

Are you in need of self-care?

To maintain positive mental health and wellbeing, we must look after ourselves. Self-care is a great way of dedicating time to just that. Self-care can take many forms, including physical, spiritual, and emotional; whatever works for you. We can help with aspects of your self-care practice, such as setting goals, practising mindfulness, and developing an easy-to-follow plan.

Do you need emotional support?

Emotional support can range from physical comfort to listening and empathising. If you’re experiencing trauma, domestic abuse or have lost a loved one, we can provide support via local counselling services such as Mind in Croydon’s Therapeutic Services or by booking an appointment with one of our support workers.

Know someone showing signs of mental health issues?

If you’re worried about someone you know who is struggling with their mental health, there are lots of ways you can help whilst looking after your own health and wellbeing in the process.
