Come to the Summer HUG Forum

The next Harrow User Group (HUG) Forum will be taking place on Wednesday the 28th of June, 12.30pm-3.45pm. The venue will be Harrow Baptist Church, College Road, Harrow, HA1 1BA.

If you are a mental health service user in Harrow, getting involved in HUG is a great way for you to share your opinions on services, meet others and learn new things. You can even take part in training to become a HUG rep. HUG forums are meetings that happen four times a year and involve discussion and talks on mental health themes.

This HUG forum will include the following sessions:

  • Leah Robertson (Mind in Harrow): Communities Click update
  • Gerry Devine (Harrow Community Transport): Summer Day trips in July 2017
  • Pritha Mukherjee (Radiate Harrow): Join Radiate’s empowering range of services and activities
  • Paul Pulford (Grounded Ecotherapy): Learn about promoting good physical and mental wellbeing in green environments
  • Jon Dalton (Harrow Council): What support can Housing Support services offer you?

If you would like more information, contact Raksha Pandya on 020 8515 7868 or email r.pandya@mindinharrow.org.uk. You can also visit the Harrow User Group webpage or download the forum flyer for more information.

Could you volunteer for our mental health information helpline?

Mind in Harrow is currently recruiting volunteers for its helpline, a service that offers mental health support and signposting over the phone. The helpline is also part of the Support & Wellbeing Information Service Harrow (SWiSH), providing help to anyone in Harrow aged 18 or over who needs information about keeping safe and well. This includes information and advice about a wide range of local services, including where to keep fit and well, manage finances, join social groups, look for work, start a course, access help with housing or welfare benefits or apply for a personal budget.

We welcome applications from people of any age (18+), cultural background and life experience. We ask that you commit half a day per week (Mon-Fri) for a year.

Training will be offered over three days: the 22nd, 27th and 29th of June 2017. It will take place at Harrow Baptist Church, College Road, from 10am to 4pm.

If you are interested, please contact Leah Robertson on 020 8515 7862 or email l.robertson@mindinharrow.org.uk. You can find out more about the helpline on its webpage or via the volunteering opportunities page. You can also download the flyer for the training.
