Emotional Health & Isolation

Ethnic minority groups in London face a variety of health and wellness associated challenges. One of the most significant of these is the issue of isolation which can have a severe effect on the emotional and mental wellbeing of individuals. Midaye provides a number of services (predominantly focused on women) designed to help individuals overcome the problems associated with isolation.
