Neighbourhood Mental Health Café

The Market Harborough Neighbourhood Mental Health Café is open to anyone, over the age of 18 years old, who feels they would benefit from some mental health support, whether they are feeling lonely, anxious, or are finding it hard to manage difficult feelings. The drop-in service offers a safe space for those who are struggling as well as one-to-one sessions where they can learn practical coping strategies.Crisis cafe

Provided in partnership between Turning Point and the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, the Neighbourhood Mental Health Café is open without appointments from 10.30am – 4pm each Thursday in The Lounge, Market Harborough Congregational Church, High Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7JD (please use Bowden Lane entrance).

Or if you do not wish to attend in person you can call 0808 800 3302.

The Market Harborough Neighbourhood Mental Health Café is the third of its kind in the county, with two others operating in Leicester city centre and Loughborough. The drop-in service can provide support to anyone who might be feeling anxious, lonely, or struggling with depression or dependence on alcohol, or other substances. It can also make referrals, if required, to more specialist support, which previously could only be done by a GP.

A recovery worker from the Neighbourhood Mental Health Café said: “What I would say to anyone who is unsure whether to pop along is, just do it; come down and talk to us. Walking through the door is often the hard bit, but once people do, they are immediately glad they did. We welcome people of all backgrounds, no issue is off limits, and if we can help, we will.”
