Synergy aims to develop the potential of members to improve mental health and well-being through peer support, creative arts, art and music workshops and nutrition.
We are a mutually supportive group that have mental health issues, or an interest in mental health issues. We run Synergy for and by ourselves, independent of NHS or Social Services. This includes everything from setting up in the morning, helping with the food preparation, facilitating a workshop, through to fundraising. Our focus is on better mental health through creativity, mindfulness and nutrition.
Our team based at ONCA will be running Gig Buddies for Good Mental Health (or GBMH) matching adults experiencing mental health challenges with a volunteer who has similar interests, to go to events together that each person enjoys.
