The Chelmsford Dove Project is an open door service for anyone wishing to discuss mental health issues. The team hold FREE sessions every Monday (10am – 12pm) and Friday (2pm – 4pm), where issues can be discussed in an open and healing environment and visitors can also partake in group activities to encourage peer healing
Speaking on the importance of the Dove Project, Services Manger Georgina Beadon had this to say: “People tend to think of mental health in terms of the larger issues but feelings of loneliness, insecurity and anxiety are just as important to discuss and address. The Dove Project gives people the chance to talk openly and to start taking the steps towards dealing with these issues.”
Sessions are hosted at the Orchards, Mascalls Way, Meadgate Avenue, and Chelmsford. If you would like to know more about the service then members of the team will be manning a stall at Chelmer Shopping Centre on Saturday 13th May as part of South East and Central Essex Mind’s Mental Health Awareness Week activities. Please feel free to come along and have a chat with our volunteers to learn more about the many benefits of this service and how you can get involved.
