How we help


Thrive at Doncaster Mind is a service funded by Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in collaboration with organisations across Doncaster. It aims to offer up to 24 weeks of mentoring support to people who access services more frequently than is typically expected.

Is this service right for me?


You may be interested in this service if you identify that you are regularly accessing services such as your GP, A&E, NHS 111, Crisis Services or others to support your immediate mental health and wellbeing needs.

How can the service help me?

Our friendly team will work with you to consider your individual needs and to understand the importance of services to you.

Through regular, recovery based mentoring, we will consider your strengths and encourage you to take control of your mental health and well-being.

We will help you to identify and access a plan of care that is most relevant to you. This may include thinking about:

  • ways to manage your mental health
  • thinking about your physical health and wellbeing needs
  • reflecting on your living skills
  • Understanding the importance of friends & community to you
  • Considering how you use your time
  • Exploring the importance of relationships to you
  • Working with addictive behaviour
  • Reflecting on home life
  • Exploring your identity and self esteem
  • Nurturing trust and hope in the future

It may be reassuring to know that you will work with the same person each week to identify particular difficulties that you may be facing in these areas.

Our focus is supporting your recovery by agreeing personal goals and developing coping strategies to support your ability to overcome challenges and manage your mental health and well-being in a healthy way.

We recognise that everyone’s journey is unique and that mental health and well-being can change from time to time. To support your recovery, we encourage regular opportunities to review the work together and to make changes where we agree that they are needed.

For more information about the way we work take a look at the Thrive Service User Leaflet 2021.

If you find yourself often contacting your GP, A&E, 111 or other services for support with your mental health and emotional wellbeing, we would like to hear from you.
