When you’re experiencing mental health challenges (PSS Wellbeing Centres)

Wellbeing Centres

We’re here to support you towards better mental health and wellbeing.  

We’ve all got mental health, as well as physical health. Sometimes, just like when we get ill within our bodies, our mental health can suffer, too. We can feel anxious, depressed or distressed emotionally. 

How can we help?

We can support you to improve your mental health and wellbeing. All of our support is provided through groups.

You can take part in our group sessions to learn new techniques, strategies and skills to cope, and put a plan in place for how we can move forward together.

 Wellbeing support groups

We have all kinds of courses designed to support you with your mental health and wellbeing.

Personal development courses: these are designed to enable you to recognise and develop your own personal resourcefulness, resilience and talents. We have a variety of courses depending on your needs, like anxiety management, coping with depression, mindfulness and assertiveness.

Arts and creative courses: we believe that everyone is creative and that creativity can play a powerful role in a person’s mental health and wellbeing; so we offer lots of courses that will get your creative juices flowing.

Peer support groups: there’s nothing better than talking to someone who’s been there. Here at PSS, we benefit from two sorts of expertise: professional and personal. Our peer-led groups are ran by people who have been there. They give people with personal experience of mental distress the opportunity to offer and receive support from each other.

Check out our online blog and support network at www.upbeatliverpool.com.

We know that recovering from a mental health challenge can take some time, so we will provide a safe, nurturing space for you to heal, understand, gain control and move forward with renewed meaning and purpose in life.

We deliver these sessions from various venues throughout Liverpool and online.

City Centre – The Umbrella Centre

The Umbrella Centre is based within a Georgian terrace on Mount Pleasant. It’s a place of calm where a lot of our courses are delivered.

 Garston– Dutch Barn

Dutch Barn is a wooden cabin surrounded by greenery and allotments in Garston. Being surrounded by nature has proven benefits to our wellbeing, and with its big windows and leafy-green surroundings, Dutch Barn really offers this.

 Belle Vale– The Avenue

The Avenue is based in a large vibrant room within The Millennium Centre, right in the heart of the local community.

City Wide –  www.UpbeatLiverpool.com

We also offer sessions online for those people who appreciate the convenience of receiving support at home.
