Royston Wellbeing Groups – Mind in Mid HertsBack to Activities
Mind in Mid Herts (a mental health charity) is hosting two groups in Royston to support mental wellbeing, whatever challenges you might be facing. One is arts and crafts based, and the other is an opportunity for a cup of tea and a chat.
This activity is good for wellbeing because
- getting out of the house and having a regular routine gives you structure and purpose;
- you will meet people with similar experiences and might make new friends;
- learning new skills and being creative are proven to support good mental health.

What to expect
These groups provide a safe and supportive environment in which to meet others and share experiences. The group that meets in the afternoon on Wednesdays has an arts and crafts focus (all materials provided), and the group that meets in the morning on Thursdays is an opportunity for a cup of tea and a chat. It isn’t group therapy, but it’s hoped you’ll feel better for having been. The arts and crafts group will be joined by an art tutor once a month with the opportunity to try new skills like pottery.
All groups start with a check-in so you can share how your week is going, but there is no pressure to participate if you just want to observe or just ‘be’. Groups last an hour or so, but you don’t have to stay for the whole thing.
To find out when and where groups take place and complete an application/referral form, contact Carlie via phone or email. You don’t have to live in Royston or Hertfordshire to attend.
Groups are for age 18+ and are mixed sex. The venue for the groups is close to the station, has disabled access and free parking. You can bring a carer, support worker or friend along with you.
Mind in Mid Herts is always on the look-out for volunteers to support outreach work – if you can spare some time, they’d be delighted to hear from you. Find out more here.
Attending these groups is free – including art/craft materials and refreshments.
