What we do

At the very least, mental health problems affect 1 in 4 people during their lives, but recent estimates place it much higher as 2 out of 3. In our experience, a major part of the healing process is the simple act of being listened to and heard. Take Off works for better physical and mental health and we recognise the two are intrinsically linked. Furthermore, we are aware of the link between mental health problems and economic hardship, which also bring loneliness and lack of occupation and purpose. We run entirely on the peer support model and most of our services take the form of self-help groups, which are either “talking” or “doing” focused.
