The Mix launches a new East London service
This week sees the launch of our first London portal – and we’re kicking off in the East with Tower Hamlets.
The Mix in Tower Hamlets
The new Tower Hamlets portal has been built in partnership with the region’s clinical commissioning groups, support organisations from the area (including Young Minds, All Abilities Youth Forum and Tower Hamlets Youth Council) and local young people – to ensure it reflects the needs of the community.
Based on their feedback, The Mix has built a portal which offers those under the age of 25 a way to quickly find youth services in the area, access to free information to help those feeling low or suffering from mental health problems, a new self-care quiz and listings of local support events in the borough.
Find or recommend stress-busting places in Tower Hamlets
To coincide with the release of the portal, we’re also launching a new Mindfulness Map – an ever evolving online resource, that gives you the opportunity to find and recommend useful places in Tower Hamlets to help with the stresses of life. The recommendations might include local services, parks, quiet spaces or even, if it’s your thing, a calming rave. Raves are calming to some, right (see Morning Gloryville)?
The map is now live and we want to hear from you. Send us your recommendations by using the hashtag #MindMapTH on twitter, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Get started by looking at what’s already been added to the Mindfulness Map:
More local services on their way!
In addition to our Tower Hamlets service, we’ll also be rolling out more regional portals over the coming months. And in the meantime, if you’re looking to find local help, download our StepFinder app. It’s available for all UK regions, and helps you pin-point local services quickly and easily – so you can get the support you need fast.
