Eclipse Barnet recently celebrated its one-year anniversary.
Providing support to approximately 155 transitioned service users and 176 new service users, the service has already achieved a great deal since its transition from RF Barnet and Mind in Barnet to become the new look Eclipse.
The scheme offers a wide range of courses, including confidence building and stress management, and around 15 weekly social groups such as creative writing and music groups. There is also one-to-one support through key advising sessions, training and peer groups.
The team has developed excellent relationships with local services to ensure we can provide the highest level of support possible to service users.
Plans for the coming year include working closely with service users to get feedback and suggestions for how our courses and groups can be improved further. Other aims include developing more relationships with other local organisations, recruiting more peer volunteers and mentors to support others on their recovery journey, and to continue work raising awareness and reducing stigma surrounding mental health within the community.
Eclipse is aiming to expand its social media following as an online community support network, and you can follow the service on Twitter and Facebook.
