We are proud to be a part of a brand new citywide mental health and wellbeing service which launched this year on World Mental Health Day – 10th October.
Community Roots is a network of 16 organisations providing services and resources to support mental health across Brighton & Hove. The services are all person-centred, responsive and flexible to meet people’s needs, help them manage their mental health and realise their full potential.
The network is the first of its kind in Sussex. Led by housing, care and support organisation Southdown, in partnership with Allsorts Youth Project, Assert, Brighton Women’s Centre, Cruse Bereavement Care, Fabrica, Friends, Families & Travellers, Grassroots, The Hangleton & Knoll Project, Mind in Brighton and Hove, Mind Out, Money Advice Plus, Trust for Developing Communities, Rethink, Switchboard and The Clare Project.
TDC will be working together with the Hangleton & Knoll project to deliver and facilitate services that improve the mental health and wellbeing of people from local BAME communities. We’ll be particularly focusing on those who have limited access to community mental health services, those living in areas of greatest socio-economic need, and those coming from high-risk communities such as refugees and migrants.
The freephone service is available on 0808 196 1768 is open Monday to Friday between 9am to 5pm. Callers will be given help to navigate and access relevant services.
