What Do Love Me Love My Mind Do? 

They work with the local community offering a range of services to help promote mental wellbeing and break down stigma surrounding mental health. With 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem in any one year, and 2-3% of the population experiencing severe mental health difficulties, charities like Love Me Love My Mind offer support to the many people who are struggling every day, as well as tackling the stigma of mental health so that people are able to reach out for help when they need it. 

They provide both personal, support based services as well as promoting general mental health awareness, in order to make it easier for people who are struggling to reach out and find the help they need. They are run solely by volunteers, therefore any donations go directly towards supporting more people with mental health struggles. They also run a festival every year to help promote mental health awareness and help people to find support for mental health issues. 


What Services Do They Offer?


  • Regular Monday drop-in sessions 

  • Wednesday ‘Let’s Talk’ Sessions 

  • Arranging the Epsom Mental Health Week every year

  • Supporting people and their loved ones who are struggling with mental health issues

What Is the Monday Drop In Session? 


The Monday drop-in sessions are a place to meet other people, share what is on your mind, engage in new activities and enjoy a home cooked meal. They begin these sessions with some refreshments and a free space to share anything you want to (if you want to!). They then do an activity chosen by the group such as dancing, music evenings, talks, arts and crafts as well as local outings and trips to London. After the activity, the group enjoys a home cooked meal before the evening comes to an end. You can find out about upcoming sessions here. 

 They are held every Monday from 4pm-7pm at St Barnabas’ Church, Temple Road, Epsom KT19 8HA. These sessions are open to everyone and cost just £2 to be a part of.

Entrants can also enter poetry. Three are three age categories (0-11, 12-18, 19+) with cash prizes of £100! They also have the art without competition that artists can enter, where people can send in their creations without competing. All entries into both categories will be displayed at The Horton Arts Centre throughout the festival and can be collected by the artists afterwards.

Speakers : Every year they also have a range of speakers who will discuss different topics related to mental health and wellbeing. These sessions offer valuable insight into mental health struggles including how to manage mental health, what it can feel like experiencing these difficulties and workshops to practice positive mental wellbeing strategies. Speakers can be anyone from doctors and mental health practitioners to people who want to share their own mental health journeys, as well as specialist workers from organisations such as AA and grief counsellors.
