Mental Health Aware UK is collaborating with Shawmind in the launch of the Breathe Café at Lu-Ma café in Wimbledon (London), the official launch will take place in mid July 2021.
Shawmind is a registered mental health charity in England, who with MHA-UK believe that everyone should have access to mental health resources when they need them. We are committed to helping people struggling with their mental health when they need it, we are doing this by increasing mental health education in schools, changing the corporate opinion of mental health and raising awareness to break the stigma and normalise conversations.
MHA-UK are committed to educating individuals and organisations so they understand mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Breathe Cafés are mental health safe spaces that provide a mental health first aider and resources about mental health and wellbeing. Each Breathe Cafe partner have an identifying “Breathe Café” sticker on their door or window.
Breathe Cafés are the perfect place to just ‘breathe’ when you’re feeling stressed or anxious and Lu-Ma is the perfect venue for this.
