Breathe Cafés are mental health safe spaces that provide a mental health first aider and resources about mental health and wellbeing. Each of our Breathe Cafe partners have an identifying “Breathe Café” sticker on their door or window.

If you’re feeling lonely or isolated as a result of the pandemic or otherwise… or perhaps you are struggling with anxiety or some other mental health challenge, we encourage you to access the books and other resources provided at the Breathe Café. Meet up with a friend, or one of our trained volunteers who are there to listen and signpost you towards better mental health.

Interested in getting a Breathe Café near you? We are partnering with coffeeshops and pubs throughout the country – introduce us to your favourite local spot and we will work with them to bring a Breathe Café to your area.
