Our seven Wellbeing Centres, located across East Sussex, provide a range of community-based mental health and wellbeing support to enable you to get well, stay well and prevent crisis.

The Centres are part of a network of mental health recovery support, called the East Sussex Community Network (for more information download the leaflet below - translated versions are also available below).

At Southdown we are committed to supporting people whilst keeping both our clients and staff safe by practicing good infection control. You can read our latest Covid-19 statement here.

What support is available?

Our team of friendly Recovery Workers will work with you to develop a personalised wellbeing plan and support you to access activities and groups at the Centres and in your local community.

"When I visited, I was struck by the commitment, warmth and experience of the team and its warm, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere."

One to one support

Our trained Recovery Workers will work with you for up to 10 sessions enabling you to identify goals and overcome challenges that will help you move forward in your recovery and maintain positive health and well-being. This includes managing your mental health, identifying your strengths and interests and signposting you to various opportunities within your local community.

Group support

We offer a wide variety of person-centred groups that are offered online and face-to-face, within our Centres and in outdoor locations.

Group activities range from walking, yoga, mindfulness, stress management, peer social support groups and much more. Our timetable is regularly reviewed and adjusted in line with feedback from our clients.

Our online timetable can be viewed or downloaded here. For information about our face-to-face groups, please contact your nearest Wellbeing Centre – contact details can be found at the bottom of this page.

Peer support

Peer Specialists (people with lived experience of mental health challenges) are also available to provide a listening ear and support.  You can read more about our Peer Support Service on our website here.

Out of hours support

In addition, out-of-hours mental health support is available at the Hastings (St Leonards) and Eastbourne Wellbeing Centres, through our Staying Well Space service.

"As well as being a place that can support your mental wellbeing, it is a rescue place for people in distress."


Am I eligible?

The service is available for adults (aged 16 +) living in East Sussex who are experiencing issues affecting their mental health and wellbeing.
