Sessions are run across Oxfordshire, to find out more and access our services, please contact our Information Line who can arrange an Options session and give you further details. Options sessions help people find the right support and services within Oxfordshire Mind and its partners. The Information Service is also able to provide signposting information and attends events in the community. To book an Options session or for more information about mental health services, call the Oxfordshire Mind Information Line on 01865 247 788, which is open Monday to Thursday between 9:30am and 4:30pm and Fridays between 9:30am and 4:00pm.
Oxfordshire Mind has Wellbeing Centres in Abingdon, Banbury, Oxford and Witney, as well as groups meeting in the community across Oxfordshire. Wellbeing Centres provide peer support groups, a programme of short courses and workshops designed to promote wellbeing and many creative activities and groups. To access one of the services, please take part in an Options session first. This involves either a phone call or face-to-face meeting with one of Mind’s Wellbeing Workers and an opportunity to have a chat about what services are available, to listen to you, and decide what to do next.
Peer support groups provide a safe, welcoming space to share activities, issues or thoughts and to meet people who may have experienced similar issues. Some groups may be for specific groups of people or may be focused around specific activities.
Short courses can provide you with tools to look after your mental wellbeing, and skills to help you get the most out of life. There is a wide range of courses on offer, categorised by either coping skills, keeping well, arts and culture, physical health, severe and enduring mental health problems or practical skills.
