Mental Health Services

Community Action Partnershp's Mental Health Day Services offer a variety of social groups and activities all aiming to enable recovery by providing the space and skills people need to cope with their difficulties, increase their confidence and self esteem and lead an independent life.

"Recovery…is about what was lost, rights, roles, responsibilities, decisions and support. It is not about symptom elimination, but about what an individual wants and how they can get there and how others can support them to get there. It is about rekindling hope for a productive present and rewarding future and believing that you deserve it."

Anyone aged 18-65 and living within Blaby District, Lutterworth, Oadby, Wigston and Braunstone areas. People living outside of these areas are also welcome to access services, but priority for places are given to the above residents and people will have to make their own way to groups.
