Further information

The Drop-In Cafe is for anyone who’s feeling anxious, stressed or socially isolated, or if you’re worried about a friend or a family member, or if you’re just interested to know more about good mental health and wellbeing and the availability of local resources.

On World Mental Health Day, the Drop-In Cafe is hosting extra workshops and activities to raise awareness of good mental health and wellbeing. Additional support services will have stalls and consultation sessions.
