Bazaar: Free & Immediate Mental Health Support
Please see below for details from Open Door about support available through their Bazaar programme.
Open Door Charity is a mental health charity who have supported thousands of people across Merseyside over the course of 11 years and have become established as a widely-recognised innovator within the Mental Health community. We are striving to make mental health support the best it can be locally and then sharing what we have learnt nation-wide. To expand the impact of our work we have recently partnered with a number of Universities including Oxford University, we work closely with the NHS, local authorities and community partners. The Prince and Princess of Wales even visited to our Bloom Building in Birkenhead recently to find out for themselves what makes us so special!
Bazaar by Open Door Charity is a free, mentor-led therapeutic support programme available for anyone aged 17-35 who is feeling low, stressed, anxious, or generally not themselves. We take a less clinical approach to support and offer an experience that is warm, comforting, and inspiring. Bazaar lives in the Bloom Building in Birkenhead, a colourful hub for arts and connecting with people, where you’ll always be greeted by friendly faces and welcomed into a supportive community.
The Bazaar Programme is delivered on a 1 to 1 basis over 8 weeks by trained peer mentors and can help people to understand their thoughts and how these impact their actions and emotional wellbeing. Bazaar has been shown to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression by equipping people with techniques and tools they can use now and in the future, giving them more control over their wellbeing.
You don’t need a diagnosis or a professional referral to receive help. If you’re interested simply visit www.bloombuilding.co.uk to find out more or access support. If you aren’t sure if it’s for you or not feel free to give our team a call on 0151 639 4545. The Bazaar team (Luci, Olivia and George) will be happy to talk to you over the phone, have a text conversation, or have a coffee and show you round the building. Once you are ready to start Bazaar we can get your sessions started within a week.
