Fundraising

Campsbourne Infant School raise a phenomenal £692


Hellen Morrissey, Teacher, explains all:

Campsbourne is an amazing school in Haringey, with a fantastic community of children, families and staff. During lock-down, we wanted to do something that would support our own well-being, whilst doing something to help others. Our children chose Mind in Haringey as their local charity of choice. They completed a range of feats: 26 hour sponsored silences; 2.6km runs; 26 minutes bouncing on a trampoline; collecting 26 bags of litter from Alexandra Palace; wearing a teddy bear for 26.2 hours and reading 2.6 books – the list goes on! 
 
Thinking of Fundraising?

It is World Mental Health Day on 10th October. Why not consider hosting your own Fundraising event or activity for Mind in Haringey? Whether it’s music, crafts, fancy dress, dancing, cycling, running, walking or singing, you could make a huge difference.

Your fundraising efforts and donations are very important to us allowing us to continue providing essential mental health services to the Haringey community. It is important to note that we are a local charity and independent from Mind, who campaign to improve services and raise awareness.

Safe Haven Crisis Support Line

Mind in Haringey have teamed up with Clarendon Recovery College and Barnet Enfield Haringey Mental Health Trust to create Safe Haven: a mental health crisis support line, open 7 days a week, 5pm-8pm.

0800 953 0223

Originally, the Safe Haven was a crisis café service, which aimed to provide a safe space for individuals who were at risk of a mental health crisis but due to the pandemic, we have re-designed the service temporarily to be a virtual and over the phone service. The Safe Haven will provide short-term intervention to support individuals who are vulnerable and isolated.

The Safe Haven service delivers a non-medical intervention, working collaboratively with users to reduce the crisis and isolation; through enabling and supporting the user to develop safety/wellbeing crisis plans. 

This service is primarily for: adults aged over 18 who are living in Haringey and/or has a Haringey GP.  

Are you a professional working with clients in crisis? Come to the virtual Safe Haven open day, to find out more about how our crisis support line could help your clients. Friday 25th September 1-2pm on Zoom.

Haringey Welbeing Network (HWN) - Peer Support Groups

Peer support happens when people who share the same experiences come together to support each other. It can be a very enabling way to engage with other people, knowing that they understand at a very fundamental level what you are going through. 

Mental ill health can be so isolating, and this is a common complaint amongst service users. Peer support brings you together in a safe, confidential space to meet others who probably feel the same. Coping strategies are shared, friendships can be formed, and we talk about everything from the profound, to the weather. 

HWN has reviewed its groups post-Covid. There are currently two groups on Zoom on a Tuesday and a Wednesday, and one face to face group at Station House on a Thursday. We are actively sourcing other venues and hope to re-start one in Wood Green soon. 

To refer someone please contact HWN admin in the usual way. To learn more please email sue.wedge@mih.org.uk
