Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Brent Recovery Café had to temporarily close but has now reopened.

The Brent Recovery Café offers a safe and supportive space for adults (18+) living in the borough of Brent and struggling with their mental health.

Hestia who runs the Recovery Café said, We are pleased to announce that our Brent Recovery Café reopened on Tuesday 2 February 2021 at Tokyngton Community Centre. 

At the café, those who don’t have support around them and are struggling with their mental health or feeling distressed can find companionship, information, advice and support.

The café aims to give people the skills they need to reduce their immediate anxiety, combat social isolation and formulate short self-directed support plans. It is a local alternative to services traditionally accessed by those in mental distress.

The Recovery Cafe can also refer people to local mental health services if they need additional more long-term support, like the Brent Talking Therapies service.

Brent Talking Therapies is provided by The Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL). It offers a range of talking therapies for people who feel anxious and worried or down and depressed.

If you think you might be anxious or depressed, then you can refer yourself by phone, email or using our online self-referral form, all of which can be found by clicking the link below:

The Café operates on three days a week outside normal service hours (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 6pm – 11pm).

Access to the Brent Recovery Cafe is by a booked appointment or referrals only. People can self-refer by calling 07766 200 910.

Currently, appointments will predominantly be by telephone or video call.
