Creative and Support Groups
Often when we are experiencing poor mental health we can feel isolated and disconnected from the world. Creative and support groups can help reassure us that we're not the only person who has felt like this way and that we can move beyond what we are experiencing. We can also meet new people, learn new skills and build confidence.
Norwich & Central Norfolk Mind offer a range of groups and projects that help people get support and get involved.
If you experience Borderline Personality Disorder you may find our support group a good way to connect with other people who understand what you're experiencing. We explore recovery and wellness, sharing our ideas and lived experience to support one another to find solutions to the challenges we may face. This life skills programme also gives you the chance to meet new people and try out new activities.
The Support Group is run over 26 weeks. Groups are held on a Monday or a Wednesday in the centre of Norwich.
Connecting with nature and growing things has been shown to have lots of positive health benefits. Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind’s award winning Gardening Group runs twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are always looking for more people to join us and no experience is required.

Engaging in creative activities has been shown to have huge benefits for emotional wellbeing. We are running free animation workshops so you can create your own stop-motion animations. Stop-motion animation is a simple, hands-on approach which requires no expertise. It can encourage self-development, confidence, group working skills, increased self-esteem and is a fun and interesting way to explore and express ideas.
The next free workshop is on Thursday 23rd November from 10.15am-5.00pm. Email us today
