Meet Kasia, our Polish mental health community outreach and development worker. Kasia left Poland 10 years ago and now lives locally with her family.

"I’m passionate about helping Polish people in my local community to get mental health support. And I want to break down the stigma that often surrounds mental health."


We want to ensure that if you or your family and friends are struggling with your mental health, you can get support with us. We understand that sometimes it can be difficult to ask for help.

Call Help Point on 0300 303 5652 to find out more about our services or email helppoint@westsussexmind.org

If you would like help to access our support or more information about this project, contact Kasia on 07494 055440 or email kasia.racey@westsussexmind.org

Understanding what you need

We would like to understand more about what you need in terms of support and why perhaps you aren’t getting help with your mental health. Please take a few minutes to complete our survey to help us understand your priorities and how we can help. The survey is in Polish.

West Sussex Mind offers a range of support to help you with your mental health. This includes help for parents and carers with young children, for 16-25 year olds, and for adults and children in GP surgeries. See below links to leaflets about our services, translated into Polish.

Free mental health training

We offer free mental health awareness training to help you understand what mental health is and why it’s important, common mental health conditions, how to recognise if someone is having problems with their mental health and where to get help. We have translated this free training into Polish for you.

How to get involved

We are looking for volunteer Polish speakers to help us reach out to Polish communities in Worthing and Littlehampton – and to make sure that everyone knows about our help. We need volunteers to help us connect with schools, workplaces and other community organisations.

If you have a few hours a month to spare, we can train you to raise awareness about our work and about mental health generally. We are looking for volunteers for the following roles:

  • Help Point volunteer
  • Mental health champions
