Asian Community Support

     

A borough wide service for members of Hillingdon’s Asian communities who have a mental health issue, and for their families, friends or carers. We offer:

  • social contact
  • emotional support
  • information and advice

There is an enormous stigma around mental illness in the Asian communities but Hillingdon Mind’s Asian community support service is welcoming, inclusive, and user-friendly. It continues to raise awareness around the mental health needs of the Asian communities and keep them high on the mental health agenda.

 Volunteer Opportunities

 

We welcome enthusiastic, regular, and committed volunteers to assist with the weekly support group. Volunteers potentially bring a range a knowledge, experience, and skills which can be enormously helpful. Most of all, they bring possibilities for social interaction for people who are often isolated as a consequence of their mental health issues. Volunteers with the Asian Community Support are required to be fluent in at least one Asian language.

 

Volunteering also offer the opportunity to make a valued contribution to the local community.
