The Alexandra Wellbeing House, Gloucester
The Alexandra Wellbeing House is located within the centre of Gloucester and was officially opened by the Countess of Wessex in July 2017. ‘The Alex’ is a partnership project between Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind with ²gether NHS Foundation Trust. The service is also supported by NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group.
The Alexandra Wellbeing House provides a safe, therapeutic environment for adults with mental health challenges who need up to two weeks support and advice from Wellbeing Support Staff. Individuals are referred to as ‘guests’ to reflect the non-clinical and relaxing atmosphere of the service. Each guest is allocated their own private bedroom and there are also several communal areas and shared facilities such as, the living room, kitchen, crafts room, outdoor garden space and summer house.
We aim to be as flexible as possible to ensure every opportunity is given to those in need and decisions to offer guests a stay are considered on a case by case basis. To access this service, a guest must be:
- Aged 18 years and upwards
- Registered with a GP within the Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group area
- Risk assessed to ensure The Alexandra Wellbeing House is a safe and suitable environment

Here's what one guest said about the Alex:
“It is such a lovely house to stay in – really homely. It is clean, warm and inviting with a lovely outside space to relax in too. I was encouraged to potter in the garden as I do at home which helped me relax.”
