“Jamila’s Legacy is really helpful, just going to one session made me realise I need to take care of my mental health and I need to seek help.”

The most unique feature of Jamila’s Legacy is to facilitate individuals to identify and develop solutions, resources and training sessions that they feel are crucial to their mental wellbeing using a user led approach”.

“I have found Jamila’s Legacy to be a much-needed resource not only during the Covid pandemic but also following the pandemic. I have personally benefitted from the information sessions on handling bereavement and grief, learning about culturally appropriate services and learning about the availability of resources that help with financial and debt management By bringing in specialists to deliver information sessions. Jamila’s Legacy is enabling access to services to individuals who would otherwise not have access to in these days of increasing mental health problems and limited statutory and voluntary services”
