The Café Taking Mental Health Support To The High Street

Words by Harrison Read

Head Room by Jami is more than a café. They are a community hub on the high street, where coffee, conversations and connections are made.

By providing a relaxed and welcoming space, where mental health support and education are accessible to everyone in the community, Head Room is changing the way the Jewish and wider community think about mental health, helping to normalise conversations about mental health and mental distress, and raise awareness of a condition that affects one in four people in England every year.

More importantly, their social enterprise café has been the pioneer in taking mental health support from an institutional setting to the high street, leading the way for others to follow.
