A Friend in deed

Just people helping people helping people. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to,,,, who understands exactly where you're at, because they've either been there or they're there now, and just want to talk about it. A problem shared is indeed a problem halved. Together, nothing is insurmountable!

Anyone in the Northamptonshire area

Hi, I was looking for groups in my local area and could not seem to any, however there seem to be groups for other places. I thought it would be a good idea to start one, so people can make new connections in there local area.

Northamptonshire-Let’s get together

It would be nice to have a group in Nothamptonshire that people living with depression can join and enjoy. A social group where we can get together to have a chat, go for walks, go to the cinema, out for a meal or just have a coffee an chill.

Getting Active Northampton

Being active definately releases the happy hormones....

So even if just one day, come along...and we can reward ourselves with a coffee in the Park Cafe.

Side By Side Northamptonshire

What is it ? The Side by Side meet ups are based on mutual support, a chance for you to get out of the house and meet up with people you can relate to. Who is it for? Anyone can come along. Whether you’re having a good or a bad day we’d still love to see you at the meet ups, as long as you feel able to be there for others as well as benefit from their support. Who runs the groups? Our meet ups are arranged and run by those who attend, although a local volunteer, wellbeing navigator or someone from Mind may pop in occasionally to offer some support and information.
