MH Hub has a vision to support the local community of Wandsworth with the establishment of a multi-use community hub facility for people who suffer from mental illnesses. The Hub will provide services working to help both older and younger people, share experiences, skills, knowledge and support, whilst spreading the our vision across South London.

What we'll deliver:

  • Community café
  • Small sports facilities areas
  • Access to Police community support and justice organisations for education, prevention classes and youth involvement
  • Before and after school care
  • Support mental well-being
  • Single and young parents’ support
  • Support for people in poverty
  • Occupational therapy
  • Psychology sessions
  • Educational and employement mentoring and support

Why it's a great idea:

Our approach will help ensure that the Hub’s Vision, to directly focus on the needs of the community it serves and that the services being provided remain relevant and can be adapted to suit any changes in the environment. The reality is we clearly have a variety of current and future community needs that stretch across the Wandsworth Borough and Greater London. We believe, that our presence can, and will empower people in the community, bring our community closer together for the overall betterment of mentallly ill people of all ages.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchasing and develoment the building for the MH HUB
  • Building and enhancing relationships with mental health services in the local community
  • The provision of services provided by the project to mentally ill individuals
  • Expansion of the MH HUB across the wider community (Greater London)

The costs to the NHS in England have been described in a report by the London School of Economics. Total expenditure on healthcare for mental illness amounted to some £14 billion/year (2010/11). Poor mental health is associated with physical health problems. Of those with a long-term physical health condition around 30% will also have a mental health problem, and of those with a mental health problem, around 45% will also have a long-term physical health condition. The MH Hub recognises that all of these are core arguments, and these have in fact driven the establishment of the MH Hub organisation and the ultimate provision of the facility, through support for all people who suffer from Mental Health in the community. It is intended that the facility will play a long-term key role in breaking into these influences and experiences, thus reducing the effects of loneliness, isolation, social injustice and, therefore health inequalities.
