Love Me Love My Mind is a small registered charity based in Epsom Surrey which aims to promote better understanding of mental health and to support the well-being of everyone in the community.
We are looking for friendly and supportive people who are happy to chat or just sit and listen – and also willing to make refreshments, serve meals and help with washing up!
The Monday Drop-In at St Barnabas Church began in 2006 and some 30 to 40 people attend each week. The atmosphere is informal and welcoming and it is a good place to meet others and volunteers are on hand to provide a listening ear or just be beside someone as a supportive presence.
The Drop-In volunteers ensure that there are always refreshments and homemade meals available.
The activities programme for the Drop-In is decided by the members and has included a variety of craft and skills evenings and a number of outings.
We are not looking for people with specific qualifications – rather people who are good listeners and effective communicators with an understanding of the range and variety of people’s mental health concerns, people who are comfortable with themselves and able to be comfortable with others who may be experiencing difficult times.
Also people fit enough to move chairs & tables is really helpful!
Drop-In runs from 4.00p.m. - 7.00p.m. so being available for 10-15 minutes either side would be helpful.
