St.Helens Mind is a voluntary organisation working with people who are isolated due to mental health problems. We offer a Befriending Service to provide one to one support to individuals who are experiencing loneliness and isolation.


St.Helens Mind can provide a Volunteer Befriender to provide friendship, emotional or practical support.  We aim to improve the person's quality of life, helping them to become more independent as well as being more involved in the community.


St.Helens Mind also runs and supports Groups, has an allotment for people who access our Service and can signpost people to the relevant organisations or support.


Volunteers are vital to our work and are much valued. New volunteers are always needed to support local people who are facing difficulty due to mental illness.


Referrals to the Befriending Service can be made by the person themselves or by a GP, family member, social worker or other worker who has a professional input.


Further details about St.Helens Mind's service can be found under the relevant headings to the left of the page. If you have any queries please contact the team on 01744 647089
