Mental health support in the community

Hive provides individual and group support to people to improve their mental well-being and connections with the community.

We aim to provide an easily accessible and safe space for people to reconnect, learn new skills, develop healthy routines, and share lived experiences.

We support people, and their carers, to improve their mental health by:

Connecting people with appropriate supports through referral and advocacy.

Developing improved self-esteem and self-confidence to build resilience and empowering people to maintain their well-being.

Strengthening people’s individual networks to increase their knowledge, to adapt and learn new skills and share lived experiences.

Supporting people to identify their own strengths.

Developing and practising skills that support well-being and developing healthy routines.

Providing social opportunities and skills building to connect people with the community.

Offering opportunities to volunteer and build capacity to volunteer in the community.
