South Somerset Mind works towards a society where individuals who have mental health problems are accepted and included. We actively promote better mental health through all our projects and services and have a holistic approach to well being and recovery.

South Somerset Mind provides a range of services to support the recovery of those living in the local community and surrounding villages who are suffering from mental health distress.

  • Community Day - A user led community day takes place every Wednesday 9.30am-3.30pm at the Methodist Church, Yeovil. The day provides access to activities and the opportunity to engage socially with other people. A support worker is also available on the day to offer emotional support and information regarding our services plus signposting to other agencies and services.
  • Themed Drop-Ins - South Somerset Mind are currently running topic related Drop-in sessions on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month from 10-1pm. The sessions are delivered in partnership with the local authority, local housing association and other organisations. A range of one to one appointments are available, providing direct access to valuable and correct advice. The sessions are aimed at people who have poor mental and physical health, and who may be vulnerable and feel unable to seek advice elsewhere.
  • Emotional Outreach Project - Working across South Somerset and Mendip.
  • Somerset Partnership Talking Therapies as part of the new county wide service for people with anxiety and depression
  • Vanessa Project - Free weekly horticultural therapy sessions on an allotment in Yeovil. We meet every Monday at 9.30am until 12:30pm at St Marks Methodist Church, Chelston Avenue. No experience is necessary only appropriate footwear. To help those going through psychological stress experience the joys and rewards of gardening.
