Not everyone struggling with a mental or emotional challenge needs a diagnosis, sometimes they simply need a space where they can feel safe and comfortable to “just breathe”.
Through the Breathe Café we provide a relaxed, non-judgemental safe space for active listening partnered with a library of mental health books and signposting to further resources in your local area – free of charge and without a GP referral.
With this offering we hope to bridge the gap for people experiencing mental ill health who are not currently getting the support that they need.
In 2019, our first Breathe Café opened in Newark, Nottinghamshire and now we are expanding our footprint and opening them all over the UK. If you have a location you believe is suitable for a Breathe Café, we would love to hear from you.
Our Breathe Youth programme is a collection of initiatives aimed at young people to help them to understand and improve their mental health and wellbeing.
Last year we engaged with more than 600 young people and encouraged them to become more open about their mental health needs. Discussions focused on topics such as bullying, self-esteem, peer pressure and the impact of social media.
To reach as many young people as possible, we have formed strong relationships with a range of educational establishments, including primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.
Do you represent a school, college or university that would like to work with us to deliver a Breathe Youth programme? Get in touch today.
Our Breathe Mancave project helps men to open up and talk about their mental health and wellbeing.
Starting at two locations in Newark on a bi-weekly basis, the project features mental health speakers, wellbeing experts, and men with lived experiences opening up discussion and exploration of mental health with the predominantly male audience.
