Mental Health Support
Nottingham Forest Community Trust is thrilled to announce the extension of our mental health programmes working in partnership with other organisations to continue our support in promoting positive mental health in the community.
These additional initiatives offer a safe and inclusive space for individuals to discuss their wellbeing and find support through peer interaction. Beginning from the 1st June, these hubs will provide regular sessions designed to address specific needs and interests. Whether you’re seeking online or face-to-face sessions, there is a hub for everyone.
Tricky Hubs: Connecting People from All Walks of Life
The Tricky Hubs are open to individuals from all backgrounds and will run on a weekly basis. These sessions provide a comfortable environment where participants can openly discuss their mental health. Whether you prefer the convenience of online sessions or the personal interaction of face-to-face meetings, the Tricky Hubs have got you covered. Join us every Thursday from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm and embark on a journey towards better mental health.
Armed Forces Hubs: Supporting Our Veterans
In recognition of the unique challenges faced by armed forces veterans, the Armed Forces Hubs have been established. These hubs will run monthly on the first Monday of each month from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at the City Ground. The sessions are specifically tailored to address the mental health needs of veterans, providing a space for them to connect, share experiences, and find support within a community that understands their journey.
BUB Hubs with Bottled Up Blokes: Fostering Male Mental Health
To acknowledge the importance of addressing the mental health concerns of men, we’ve partnered up with Bottled Up Blokes to deliver BUB Hubs. These are open to men aged 18 and above and will take place on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the John Godber Centre in Hucknall and are available on a walk-in basis, no booking required. By creating a comfortable and understanding environment, these sessions encourage open dialogue about mental health, helping participants feel supported on their individual paths to wellbeing.
Mindful Walks: Connecting Women with Nature
Partnering with the Canal and River Trust, Nottingham Forest Community Trust presents the Mindful Walks sessions, designed exclusively for women aged 18 and above. Taking place on Thursday mornings from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, these sessions offer a unique opportunity to combine the benefits of physical exercise, nature, and mindfulness. Explore scenic routes in Newark and West Bridgford, while engaging in conversations about mental health and building connections with other participants.
All of these mental health hubs operate on a peer support model, emphasising the importance of connection and understanding. The sessions are informal, providing a relaxed and non-judgmental atmosphere where individuals can freely express their thoughts, concerns, and triumphs regarding mental health. By fostering a sense of community and solidarity, these hubs encourage positive mental health practices and empower participants to take charge of their wellbeing.
Nottingham Forest Community Trust is committed to supporting the community in its pursuit of positive mental health. Together, we can create a safe and supportive environment where conversations about mental health are encouraged, and individuals can find solace in the power of shared experiences. Join us as we prioritise mental wellbeing and strive to make a lasting impact on the lives of those around us.
