One Voice Blackburn aims to address the stigma of mental health by supporting residents to access early help in a warm and supportive environment. We deliver activities framed around the ‘five ways to wellbeing’ in our groups for young people (Mini WEGs, WEGs and EEBs) and deliver focus groups to discuss mental health and emotional wellbeing in both of our women’s groups and our men’s group.
