The Springboard

Do you need help and encouragement to improve your situation? Do you need information and support to do this? Are you ready to challenge yourself?

The Springboard is for people with mental health problems who are ready to begin, or are on the road to recovery.
It is a place where you can come along and have a chat about your situation and find out what is available to help you on your recovery journey.

The Springboard offers:

  • a warm friendly atmosphere with refreshments provided
  • trained volunteers available to offer support and advice
  • information about opportunities and services
  • encouragement and support to try new things
  • the opportunity to try activities within the Springboard and the Time Builders programme
  • the opportunity to make friends
  • encouragement and support to take ownership of your situation

If you feel ready to take part then please come along - The Springboard is run in 5 different locations, see below for venues, dates and times:

Please note that if you don't want to talk about making changes in your life or you are not ready to try new things then you may need help and support from other services before coming to the Springboard.
