Shepton Mallet Mental Health Wellbeing Group

The Shepton Mallet Wellbeing Project is a Big Lottery Funded project aimed at supporting people in Shepton Mallet and the surrounding areas to improve their mental wellbeing. The groups will focus on improving confidence, life skills, assertiveness, social skills and training and employment opportunities. 

Each groups will be 3 hours long and will include both a taught and creative session related to the individual weeks' content in a 12 week rolling programme, and our Support Workers will offer short 1-1 wellbeing checks as well as individual guided goal setting support. Individuals are able to come for as many weeks as they like, and may chose to do more than 12 weeks, or even return to volunteer! 

The types of taught sessions we will be delivering are;

  • Building confidence
  • Saying no
  • Understanding anxiety and fight or flight
  • Problem solving
  • Healthy living
  • Managing change

The types of creative sessions we will be delivering are;

  • Planned trips
  • Community art projects
  • Skill swap sessions
  • Woodcarving workshops
  • Support cards
  • Reclamation 
  • Healthy food 'Taster' session


The Shepton Mallet Wellbeing Group is run at the Community Hospital (BA4 4PG) every Friday from 10am - 1pm. This group is run by Leanne & Jess, our very experienced & friendly Support Workers.
