Welcome to Open Arms East Devon’s website!
After the recent closure of a mental health service, Garry took it upon himself to start a new group within Honiton to support those who lost the previous support and to offer support to anyone else who is living with mental health concerns. That was in April 2017 and since then it has grown from strength to strength with the backing of the local community, council and health workers.
We offer a friendly, warm welcome to any new members, with no judgment and no pressure to talk about anything you don’t wish to. The group meet twice weekly, on a Tuesday and Friday at Dunning Court Community Center in Honiton, with many activities including arts & crafts, cooking, darts, pool and more; Open Arms East Devon helps to build friendships, support, social networks, skills and self esteem. Sessions are free of charge and act as a drop in service between the hours of 10:30am and 4pm.
