What our Clients
say about Activate Mental Health?
Activate provides me with a platform to meet more like-minded individuals, expand my social network, and make some lifelong friends. I really enjoyed their variety of their meetup activities, such as the board game nights, park walking, 8 ball pool and silent book clubs
Every time I go to an Activate event
I walk away happier and
I feel like I have met my people through Activate. I feel connected and have developed a friends base through this Meetup group.
Even if you don't identify as having any ongoing or recognised mental health conditions but just need to help keep your everyday mental health happy and in check this group helps you to interact with others in an organised planned event. Turn up, have fun, go home happier.
I have been a member for several years. I felt accepted from the beginning, I really feel a part of the AMH community, I have great fun at all the events I attend & I have gained numerous friendships.
Testimonials by Volunteers
“As a volunteer, I truly believe I've had amazing opportunities to meet new people and feel like I've become part of something far greater than I ever expected. I've had a lot of fun broadening my facilitation skills and I have improved my ability to make new social connections.”
“I feel much purpose in this role, in bringing people together knowing that they will have the same struggles with social anxiety like me but also want to get out and connect with people as well. I feel a deep satisfaction watching new friendships form and even seeing some of that anxiety that our members suffer from fall away as their needs for connection are met. It's wonderful to watch.”
