Latest News- How does the current Pandemic affect our Services?

Currently we are reviewing all news and Government updates due to the current pandemic and will be updating our social media pages as and when changes to our services occur, as well as offering daily advice on how to manage your mental health and addiction during this difficult time.

With this in mind, we have decided to close our West Essex activity groups. We will not be taking any changes to our services lightly, and hope you appreciate that we consider the health of our staff and services users incredibly seriously. If in doubt about any of our groups, please contact your service coordinators, Futures in Mind office on  ( 01376 316126) or alternatively email :-
