Programme overview

The Taking Care of You programme supplies participants with 8 weeks of wellbeing sessions. We create a space to explore ways to improve our mental health and sustain our wellbeing at work.

The team uses a creative, therapeutic and person-centred approach to create a space of comfort, understanding and shared experiences to all participants.

Sessions are led by expert therapists, psychologists and professionals in the sector who all share lived experiences.

Creating a space of trust and comfort is important to The Black Wellbeing Collective. Wellbeing improvement is both an individual and collective experience.

The Taking Care of You programme ensures that lived experiences and cultural awareness is considered with compassion and validation for the community served. The wonderful group of facilitators share their own lived experiences and relate to the group with a listening ear, co-designing  interactive and activity driven sessions every week for 8 weeks.
