Active Wellbeing (Mental Health Services)
Active Prospects Active Wellbeing Service is an innovative new health and wellbeing community for people experiencing mental health problems in the East Surrey area. The new service focuses on recovery, community and co-production.
Based at Active Prospects’ existing services in East Surrey, the Active Wellbeing Service works with its members to develop packages of support that offer each individual the best possible chance of achieving recovery. Its membership-led approach promotes peer-to-peer support, co-design of services, routes to work, monthly drop-in sessions (pictured above), a real sense of ownership over one’s own recovery programme and the development of community networks and understanding of mental health wellbeing.
Active Wellbeing is a genuine partnership between its members, its staff and the communities for which it operates. Based at a number of wellbeing services it works with its members and staff to create activities and services throughout East Surrey, promoting a non-stigmatised view of mental health.
The Active Wellbeing service operates from its six mental health services Massetts Road (Horley), Doods Road (Reigate), Chapel Road (Redhill), Croydon Road and Beech Lodge (Caterham) and Lesbourne Road (Reigate). These homes have spaces for 1 to 1, peer and community activities, and these will be supplemented by community venues and facilities as well as communal spaces in other Active Prospects’ services.
Our goal is to establish a number of activity-based services that will also act as the location for wellbeing and social enterprise activities such as our new charity shop in Horley opened in June 2017, and our Active Growth Allotment Programme launched in January 2018.
