Dudley Mind Walking Group

Dudley Mind Walking Group

Our walking group is a friendly, welcoming and supportive group of people who all enjoy meeting up once a month for a walk and a chat together, to help improve and manage their mental health and wellbeing.

The walks are led each month by our two friendly walk leaders Kirpal and Ade who both have their own experience with mental health as well as being members of our board of trustees.  

The location of the walks changes from month to month. Past walks have taken place at Kinver Edge, Leasowes Park and the grounds surrounding Wollaston Tennis club.
