What do we offer? 

To ensure the safety of you  – our members –  and also our staff and volunteers, the Healthy Minds Community Programme has suspended all of its face-to-face services for the time being and have moved our events online. For more details please click here.

Do you live in Camden? Would you like to take part in a community-based course, workshop or activity? Or perhaps you would like to get fitter, or share your skills and experiences through a volunteer scheme to help others?

Healthy Minds offers 1 year of free access to a wide range of activities to help you discover an activity that’s enjoyable and just right for you. And, if you need a hand deciding, a Healthy Minds navigator will help you.

Come along to our Coffee Mornings to find out more before registering, they run on the 1st Wednesday of every month, 11am – 12.30pm at Mind in Camden, Barnes House.

About the Service

Healthy Minds is a Mind in Camden Project aimed at supporting adults who may be struggling with their mental health, feeling isolated or disconnected with their community, or would like some additional support in finding out what their local area has to offer them. The Programme has partnered with a range of different community providers to offer our participants free access to workshops, courses and group activities for up to 1 year, to support people living in Camden to improve their wellbeing. Our Navigators work flexibly 1:1 with members to help to identify interests, uncover passions and to plan and pursue their goals, using our programme as a stepping stone into the community.

Who should use this service? 
Healthy Minds welcomes all adults 18+ who are Camden Borough residents. Unfortunately we cannot accept out of borough referrals unless you have a registered GP in Camden.

What happens after I've registered?

Once registered with Healthy Minds our members will have access to up to 1 year of free activities which you can use to tailor your own personal schedule. For those who are interested in furthering your education or skills, we can provide financial support to select learning providers through our Education Bursary.
