Mental Health First Aid

Drop in sessions offering advice and self-help strategies for young people with anxiety, stress, depression and other common mental health illness.

This is a service for young people aged 16 and over.

A team of local volunteers offer a confidential ear to those seeking self-help particularly for anxiety and depression. All volunteers have undertaken an internationally accredited Mental Health First Aid course.

  • Information on self-help therapies available in the library’s well-stocked section of Books on Prescription
  • How to access Talk Wandsworth's courses that teach strategies and techniques to manage symptoms of common mental health problems such as low mood, worry and stress
  • How to get immediate online professional help from 'The Big White Wall' available 24/7
  • Information on a wide range of activities and local social, arts and self-help organisations.

We all have mental health as we have physical health. They are often related. There is no stigma in talking about the issues. You may have already visited your GP and are having to wait for therapy. We can tell you about other courses of action.

The sessions take place every Wednesday at 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
