York Mind Services
York Mind Mental Health and Well-being Activities Programme (2017-2020) is funded by City of York Council for three years.
York LGBT Forum are happy to partner with York Mind along other partners: Converge, Kyra, Sunshine Changing Lanes, York Carers Centre, Refugee Action York-RAY, WEA and Move the Masses. Together we are supporting the delivery of Year 3 of the programme (July 2019-June 2020).
Activities run across the year, with staggered start dates and include Guided learning, such as Mindfulness, Assertiveness Skills, Creative Writing, Arts and Craft, Photography, and Pathways to Well-being. There are also Weekend Workshops on Conflict Resolution, Anxiety and Fear and Loneliness and Isolation; Well-being activities including Yoga, Pop up Fitness Sessions, Peer Support, Carer Well-being, as well as social activities including LGBT Choir, Walking Group, community socials and an open access cafe.
An important part of the programme, is that participants are able to select those activities that they feel will support them the most, based on their own interests, needs and goals.
