The importance of taking good care of our mental health and wellbeing has gained greater recognition over recent years. However, even in this more understanding climate, it can sometimes be difficult to recognise how experiences of trauma truly impact on our lives and even harder to actually deal with (rather than brush over) the effect this has on our mental health.

At Luton All Women’s Centre, we provide a range of support services for women wanting to improve their mental health and wellbeing, including 1:1 support; our Wellbeing Group; a Walking to Wellbeing Group, gentle exercise group, sewing group, and a coffee and chat group.
