The Oxfordshire Mind Wellbeing Service

by Amy Wackett

Oxfordshire Mind Wellbeing Service provides a range of new services to help people understand mental ill-health, help them identify what keeps them well and offer practical support to help them along a pathway to recovery. It is open to anyone.

As many as 1 in 4 of us in Oxfordshire will experience and mental health problem at some point in our lives. Coping can be tough, but there are things you can do to help. The Mind Wellbeing Service provides a range of short courses, peer support groups and opportunities for 1-to1 recovery planning. We also help give people information on what's available locally - because we know just how important that can be when people first start to experience problems and don't know where to turn. We are pleased to be working with other organisations such as Restore, The Reader Organisation and Oxford United Football Club to deliver a diverse programme of services designed to be accessible to more people across Oxfordshire.

There are 5 separate elements of 'steps' in the Wellbeing Service;

Public Mental Wellbeing Improvement: Work in the community such as talks and awareness events.

Information and Options: Information is available over the phone (01865 247788), online ( and in person at various sessions across the county. We take any enquiry, no matter how large or small, and will do our best to help.

Short Courses: Courses may relate to life skills such as money management, managing your health or communication skills, or in activities such as creative arts, ICT skills or physical exercise.

Peer Support Groups: Recovery-focused support groups in safe, welcoming environments.

Recovery Planning: An opportunity for individuals to discuss, plan and work on their personal goals.

For further information, details of the range of short courses and peer support groups, or other sessions offered in the county, please see Oxfordshire Mind's website:, or phone the information line on 01865 247788.
