A wellness center opens in Birmingham office block

A new deal has been struck to transform a vacant office building in Birmingham into a new cafe and wellness centre.

Birmingham-based mental health organization Living Well UK has reached a deal for 55 St Paul’s Square in the Jewelery Quarter.

The center will span three floors, with a cafe and wellness studio on the ground floor and two additional floors of therapy rooms above.

The facility will have nine therapy rooms available to smaller regional welfare organizations that have their own therapy space amid growing demand for face-to-face support.

The Wellbeing Studio will be dedicated to helping mental health staff access support for themselves.

According to recent research by the Care Quality Commission, NHS staff are generally twice as likely to record anxiety, stress or depression as the cause of sickness absence than any other reason.

Staff shortages and physical and verbal abuse are cited as key causes of concern.
