Breathe Café: A space for real conversations

Weekly Mental Health Drop-In 

What is a Breathe Café?

Our Breathe Cafés are spaces for real conversations. Drop-in during one of our weekly sessions to access resources on mental health and wellbeing, signposting to mental health services and our network of volunteers who are there to listen. 

Disclaimer: Breathe Cafés are not mental health clinics. Our volunteers are not therapists. We provide signposting and supportive listening only. Nothing provided at a Breathe Café or by Shawmind replaces advice from a mental health professional. 

How do our mental health drop-ins work? 

1. Breathe

Take a breath, relax, enjoy a drink with some delicious food while reading a book from our mental health library. 

2. Share

Open up and share how you are feeling with someone you feel comfortable with.

3. Connect
