New Mental Health Recovery Service and Open Day in Sutton Coldfield

It was a delight to catch up with Hayley and Sophie recently, two of the people behind a new mental health recovery service starting in Sutton Coldfield.

Ignite is part of Creative Support’s Birmingham Hub and Spoke Services tailored to support young adults – 18 to 25 and with a mental health diagnosis – on their personal recovery journey.

Hayley and Sophie spoke with great passion as they explained their vision for the service. Ignite will provide an opportunity for one-to-one keyworking sessions with a Support Worker to assist with their mental health recovery.

Members of Ignite can also expect sessions and practical support to develop independent living skills, encourage personal development and maintain health and wellbeing as well as therapeutic activities and projects which promote recovery. Peer support and signposting to other agencies will also be available.

Ignite will take place twice weekly:

  • Saturdays at Our Place Community Hub for sessions, discussions, activities, ongoing projects and one-to-one keyworking;
  • Wednesdays at various community venues for social activities. Meeting places may be at local cafes, parks – it all depends on the needs and interests of the group.

An opportunity to find out more and talk to the people behind Ignite is being provided on Wednesday 30th March when they will be holding an open day at Our Place Community Hub between 11am and 1pm.

Alternatively email Hayley on hayley.page@creativesupport.org.uk or call 0121 200 3188.

You’ll find Our Place Community Hub at 1-2 South Cottages, Farthing Lane, Sutton Coldfield B72 1RN.

Members can be referred by a health professional or self refer by completing an Ignite membership form.
