RB Mind Wellbeing Centre is a crisis prevention service. We are providing a safe and supportive environment for people experiencing severe enduring difficulties with their mental health. We offer a range of physical, educational, creative and social activities online, as well as opportunities for individuals to receive structured one-to-one support and Recovery STAR over the phone and online.
We are currently supporting clients on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11am-4pm. We are temporarily not organising monthly outings due to tightening restrictions around Covid-19. However, we are offering additional one-to-one support to our clients who are the most vulnerable.
We accept referrals from residents of the borough of Richmond currently accessing treatment through South West London & St Georges NHS Trust secondary mental health care, or, in some cases, specialist primary mental health care from Richmond Wellbeing Primary Care Liaison (PCL). We also take referrals from GPs
We are also now taking self-referrals. Please contact us and we will send a self-referral form to you to complete.
