Lewisham Community Wellbeing - Mental Health Support for Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers

The new integrated Lewisham Community Wellbeing service for people with mental health problems in the London Borough of Lewisham. This service is led by Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich Mind (BLG Mind) and we will deliver it in partnership with Sydenham Garden and METRO, and working closely with South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation.

  • Individual person-centred support and recovery planning

  • Workshops, courses and groups
