On behalf of the NHS, we provide practical and emotional support to people in Newcastle who are experiencing mental illness. We help people to access key community resources in the city, to get the support they need.

Who we’re here for

We support adults with mental health issues across Newcastle to get the support they need in their community. Our amazing team of Peer Support Workers all have lived experience of mental ill-health – they know what it’s like, because they’ve been there too.

The support we offer

We offer:

  • Help to people who are struggling to access support for their mental health.
  • A team of Peer Support Workers with lived experience of mental health issues.
  • A community development-based approach to mental health transformation.

We are here to support people to attend groups and key community support, to help them to gain the confidence to access activities and services to improve their mental health.

Our aim is to help people to improve the quality and sustainability of their lives. We do this by developing and building community groups, to establish strong communities that can support individuals in the right way and at the right time.
