Mind Matters groups
Mind BLMK’s Mind Matters groups offer the opportunity to discuss and explore issues around wellbeing and mental health in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental place. With weekly sessions running across Central Bedfordshire, in Ampthill, Dunstable, Biggleswade and Leighton Buzzard, we explore a range of different subjects including depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-confidence, goal setting and more.
Alongside workshops, we also provide a selection of activities, such as walking groups, self-led art activities, and a drop in service. As sessions do change from time to time, please contact us before your first visit. Whilst structured, we aim to make the sessions relaxed but informative. Tea and coffee is available, and occasionally cake!
