Mental health peer support and online resources
Lighter Minds is a non-profit association founded in April 2019. We aim to provide safer spaces for mental health sufferers and advocates to join together.
Our focus is on uniting people across the spectrum of conditions and symptoms, regardless of diagnoses. We tackle common struggles such as stress, anger, anxiety and depression.
When are the support groups?
Sessions occur every two weeks. Different locations have different days, so check out our contact us page for more information
Why did Lighter Minds get founded?
Two best friends collaborated to launch regular sessions in their hometown of Milton Keynes. To share their experiences with likeminded people, they created a new platform for peer support in their community. Through raising awareness, funds and access to treatment for mental health they have now expanded the association.
Self-care is an overused buzz word. What does it mean? Self-care is different for every individual. It involves maintaining your physical health, hygiene standards, living environment, taking care of your responsibilities and participating in things that bring you joy.
