Neighbourhood Mental Health Cafe

Neighbourhood Mental Health Cafés offer local support for people who need immediate help with their mental health. The cafés are drop-in centres for anyone to come and talk about their mental health - no appointment needed.

The cafe offers one-to-one listening and helps clients develop future support plans. For anyone struggling with their mental health and needing immediate support, please come along. We provide a welcoming drop-in centre for anyone to come and talk, have a cup of tea or coffee in a relaxed and safe space. Experienced listeners available.

Exciting changes coming: After listening to feedback and securing an additional two years of funding we are making some improvements.

From May (date TBC) we will be opening a session in Uppingham during the afternoon. Offering you the option of two different locations across Rutland and the choice between day/ evening appointments.

Please note: March 31st will be the last Sunday session running and the last day our transport option can be used.

Thursdays in Oakham will not be affected by these changes.

Thank you for your support whilst we navigate the next stage of the Neighbourhood Cafe.

Neighbourhood Mental Health Café, 2a High Street, Oakham LE15 6AL.


Thursdays 5.30pm – 8.30pm

Open to all who are aged 18+, no referral needed, simply drop-in.
