We are passionate about connecting with the local community in Portsmouth!

Our philosophy is to help overcome mental health stigma, to raise awareness about mental health, and to improve accessibility to our service. We are pleased to provide numerous events throughout the year to the local community! These events are provided free and have been delivered to the general public, businesses, organisations, educational establishments, and to staff of Solent NHS Trust..

Traditionally, we have provided events to introduce the services we offer and to raise awareness about mental health. We have also provided events for specific subjects (e.g., 'introducing mindfulness', 'stress management in the workplace', 'developing self-compassion', 'creating a balanced life') and certain groups (e.g., older adults, black and ethnic minorities).

Our latest event

We are pleased to announce our latest events:

Introducing Mindfulness!

The event would ideally suit anyone with an interest in learning about mindfulness or wishing to develop their existing practice. The event is led by psychotherapists Clive Everist and Miles Wrightman who have extensive experience practicing and teaching mindfulness. Several of their colleagues shall also volunteer to assist with the event.

The event takes place at Portsmouth Guildhall within the "Lord Mayor's Banqueting Room" on Wednesday 26th July, 6–8pm. We are looking forward to seeing you! Please register here as spaces are limited.
