Due to the current situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19), there will be no face-to-face groups or services at Growing Minds for the foreseeable future. The welfare of our clients and staff is our highest priority and we are committed to continuing our support to those who need it. We have taken the decision to conduct all individual sessions and assessments over the telephone or online until it is safe to return to normal working practices.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please contact us on 020 8986 4016 or [email protected] and we will get back to you.

We are continually monitoring the developing situation, and will take further action when necessary. Please check our website for up-to-date information.
