  • Decrease costs for health services by offering early-stage support.

With residents and connect them with different community interventions to help them improve their health and well being.

Types of Support.

The Barnet Wellbeing Service collaborates with individuals to enhance their mental and physical health through a program of activities and services:

Serving as the gateway to the Barnet Wellbeing Service, the Barnet Wellbeing Hub is a central hub connecting residents with various services and activities to enhance their emotional and mental wellbeing. It is a valuable resource, providing information and guidance to help individuals access the support they need.

Our Barnet Friends telephone befriending service is designed for adults aged 18-55 who may be isolated or lonely. We support individuals with undiagnosed and diagnosed mental health conditions, offering a compassionate and understanding ear to alleviate feelings of isolation and promote wellbeing.

Our IAPT service offers accessible treatment options for individuals experiencing common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Qualified therapists support individuals on their path to recovery by exploring underlying issues and developing coping strategies.

Mind in Enfield and Barnet deliver a Recovery College in partnership with Barnet and Southgate College. Barnet residents can participate in up to 12 specialised courses to improve self-management skills and boost confidence. The college creates a supportive and empowering environment for individuals to learn and grow in their mental health recovery journey.

Young People Thrive focuses on the wellbeing of young people aged 16-25. They collaborate with colleges, universities, and community organisations to offer innovative and accessible services, from webinars to one-to-one and group therapy sessions. They are part of an anti-stigma and mental health awareness movement, striving to create an environment where young people can thrive.

The Barnet Wellbeing Service organises quarterly public events that bring together residents, service providers, and individuals with lived experiences. These events are platforms for sharing personal journeys, exploring good practices, and discovering new opportunities.
