MIND in Haringey
Mind in Haringey is leading a new service called the Haringey Wellbeing Network; a pioneering new approach to mental health and wellbeing support across the borough.
Our purpose is to empower the community towards better self-care in their mental and physical health and, most importantly, to alleviate issues such as stress, anxiety, low mood, loneliness and isolation. We will focus on helping the community to achieve positive outcomes in: Mental Wellbeing, Physical Health, Social Networks, and Self-Management.
The Haringey Wellbeing Network is a collaboration of voluntary sector and mental health organisations, who have joined together to provide a prevention and wellbeing service for all adult residents in Haringey. It has been designed to be a single-door way for the whole community to access mental health and wellbeing support services.
The network’s key partners are Mind in Haringey, Bridge Renewal Trust and Tempo. Each of these specialist voluntary organisations has a wealth of expertise in working with a broad range of different communities across Haringey.
We aim to improve access and support for Individuals and organisations in the borough, enabling the community to improve resilience and reduce or prevent the onset of mental health problems.
The Haringey Wellbeing Network offers four key service components in Haringey:
1. Prevention and Intervention support services:
Mind in Haringey will act as the first point of contact - screening clients and supporting them into appropriate services including Wellbeing Activities at Mind in Haringey and across the borough, Wellbeing Advocacy support, Peer support groups in the community, 1-2-1Peer support Coach’s and Service user groups. Individuals can connect to Network directly by phone or email, and be guided to the most appropriate prevention and intervention services suitable to their specific and distinct needs.
2. Community and Asset development:
Bridge Renewal Trust will lead on developing local organisational knowledge in mental health. This will be achieved through providing support to organisations in the areas of Policy development, Funding application and Specialist training. Bridge Renewal will assist in building community assets through developing wellbeing projects within the community focusing on all faith groups, the Housing sector and the Leisure Industry in Haringey.
3. Community co-production and Reach:
Tempo will encourage and motivate service user participation and engagement through the use of Time credits; Time Credits drive increased community participation and volunteering from individuals experiencing or at risk of developing mental ill health, identifying and valuing their contributions and improving self-worth. Tempo will also be promoting co-production work, through providing training to organisations on how to include service users in the design of new services.
