what we do

Andover Mind have been working in the local area since 1984, providing support, advice and information for anyone affected by mental health distress. We also deliver training and try to encourage local people to talk about mental health to help break down the stigma which surrounds the subject. We work in a number of community settings as well as in our well-being centre and our Ugly Duckling industrial unit on East Portway.

at the well-being centres

Located in Westbrook Close, Andover and at the Appletree Centre in Romsey, our well-being centres house a number of projects and services as well as our charity shop. All of our services aim to help people to achieve their individual potential and participate in their community.

at ugly duckling

Ugly Duckling is our furniture repair and renovation service, located in East Portway Industrial estate. We “upcycle” furniture and other donated items to give them a new lease of life and in the process, help people with mental health problems to gain skills and experience and contribute to the community.

in the community

As well as holding group activities in the community, well-being workers  workers also support clients on a one-to-one basis, helping people to achieve their personal recovery goals.

Recovery is such an individual thing. I never thought I would recover but I was given the time to make small steps towards manageable goals.
