Mind Mid and North East Essex – Support, Time and Recovery Service (STaRS)

STaRs is for adults living with a mild to moderate mental health problem and need advice and support to get help from other local services and organisations.

STaR workers work with you and other local organisations to make sure you can get the help you need with things like:

  • housing
  • debt and finance problems
  • how to job seek

They can also introduce you to groups and activities local to you if you are feeling lonely and isolated.
