Bowhaven

BowHaven is a local, community based, mental health charity situated in the heart of Tower Hamlets, and a stone’s throw away from the famous Roman Road market. We have been running a successful Mental Health Wellbeing and Recovery Centre since 2003, and our way of working is completely person centred. This means that there is a high level of focus on choice, self-expression, support, opportunity, and positive ownership and responsibility.

Our mission is to promote and protect the health, confidence and well-being of people with mental health issues living in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, through the provision of co-produced support, education and self-help activities in a safe and friendly environment.
