Wellbeing services in Coventry

Services at the Coventry Wellbeing Hub (updated October 2021)

We are open every day of the year between 1pm and 5pm. We are open to listen and support you.

The Coventry Wellbeing Hub provides a safe space for you to explore how you are feeling and identify ways forward. We are a light-touch service offering signposting, information, advocacy, and empathic listening to anyone in Coventry aged 18 years and over.  
You do not need to have a diagnosis to access our support, you may be struggling for the first time or have ongoing mental health difficulties.

Coventry Wellbeing Hub groups and Covid considerations

Social gatherings for up to 12 people are currently being provided on a bookable first-come, first-served basis, with social distancing in place. These groups are currently available on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays and we plan to extend these sessions to further days soon.

Themed Zoom sessions and telephone/video-link support continue and signposting sessions for new enquirers are offered via telephone or face-to-face at the Hub.

Please revisit this page for further updates as we progress towards a more open format while ensuring that we keep service users, staff, and volunteers as safe and well as we possibly can.

One-to-one support – available either through telephone or email.

We offer one-to-one support for those experiencing a time of emotional distress.  We will help you to explore how you are feeling and your options going forward. Support includes a listening ear, guidance, reassurance, information and signposting. Based on individual need, we are able to offer limited individual pre-booked face to face sessions.

Recovery & Wellbeing Academy

The Recovery & Wellbeing Academy provides the opportunity to increase your knowledge and skills to become the expert in managing your own mental health and wellbeing. The academy believes that we are stronger together and works in partnership with experts by experience and experts by education in each subject area.

If you do require a face-to-face service, we can now offer that for you. Staff have worked hard to provide a Covid-safe environment. Unfortunately, this does mean that it will look and feel different to the face-to-face 1-1’s that we offered prior to March 2020.

For information, to see courses that are available, or for more information please call (024) 7622 9988

or email recovery.academy@covwarkpt.nhs.uk

or visit www.recoveryandwellbeing.co.uk

The Academy is delighted to be able to offer you a choice of online Zoom courses and face-to-face courses throughout Warwickshire.

There is a huge range of available courses to choose from. Here is a selection of our online Zoom courses:

  • Anxiety Management and Relaxation
  • Improving motivation
  • Positive thinking
  • Wellbeing for everybody
  • Understanding low mood and anxiety

We are delighted that our face to face, classroom courses started in June 2021. Our current courses include:

starting on Tuesday 6th July
Anxiety Management & Relaxation
at Bulkington Community Centre

All dates are live and ready for enrolment via:

Pathfinder

Service update

The Pathfinder service provides the opportunity to anyone living in Coventry, over 18 years of age, who is experiencing an emotionally difficult time in their lives to identify the causes and explore ways to make positive changes. You can have up to 8 sessions with a named worker that will support you to build resilience by helping people to recognise their early warning signs, enhance problem solving skills and develop coping strategies.

If you do require a face-to-face service, we can now offer that for you. Staff have worked hard to provide a Covid-safe environment. Unfortunately, this does mean that it will look and feel different to the face-to-face one-to-one’s that we offered prior to March 2020.

To Access Pathfinder, or for more information please call (024) 7622 9988

Email Pathways@cwmind.org.uk

Visit https://cwmind.org.uk/pathfinder/

Since March 2020 we have had to adjust the way we operate to provide the same quality of service, as safely as possible, but we have never stopped offering a one-to-one service to people. Despite all the changes since March, we have worked incredibly hard in developing and maintaining the same standard of service that you would have received prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Pathfinder staff have now become experts in offering support through telephone, digital and email, meaning that you can get the same support from the comfort of your own home.

Wellbeing hub groups – face-to-face (updated October 2021)

  • Requiring hand sanitising on entry
  • Requesting that masks be worn on entry/departure and while moving around, and whilst seated if felt able (unless exempt)

A statement from Dr Shade Agboola, Director of Public Health, Warwickshire County Council, following the lifting of legal Covid restrictions across England on Monday 19th July 2021
“We have supported our Wellbeing for Warwickshire Hubs throughout the pandemic to ensure they operate in a Covid-secure manner to protect the health and wellbeing of their staff, volunteers and Warwickshire residents. They have worked tirelessly to continue to offer mental health and wellbeing support to the people of Warwickshire online and in-person. We continue to provide Public Health advice and guidance to enable them to increase the provision of in person support in a safe and cautious way.
We would ask Warwickshire residents to support the Wellbeing for Warwickshire team by continuing to get tested and isolate if they have symptoms or a positive test for Covid-19, getting vaccinated and maintaining infection prevention measures including hand hygiene, wearing face coverings in enclosed settings and respecting personal space. All this will help to reduce risk of infections and reduce anxiety among staff, volunteers and others accessing services.”
