Welcome to Omnia
Omnia has been about in one guise or another for over 25 years and in that time we have worked with people as they rebuild their lives and manage experiences associated with mental health problems.
The reason people decide to come to Omnia varies but ultimately the goal is the same:
• To make sense of a diagnosis or difficult mental health experiences
• Take stock and then work out what to do next
• Start to rebuild a life that feels good and then move on
We understand that moving to somewhere new, particularly when you’re not feeling great, can be daunting to say the least. To support you we have a great team of people, activities and workshops throughout the week and a flexible approach to helping you achieve your goals.
" Getting up in the morning was a real problem, but its worth getting up here!
For the first time in a long time I feel optimistic about life and my future. "
Who's who at Omnia?
At Omnia there is a dedicated team of people to help you and everyone who lives there.
Omnia encourages open and honest relationships, which means no matter what you need anyone will be happy to listen and help.
The recovery team is made up of a manager, team leaders, recovery coaches, peer recovery workers and volunteers.
Recovery coaches each work closely with people who live at Omnia. They will meet with you regularly in the beginning, so they can get to know you. This helps them support you in the best way, and when you're ready they will work with you on your recovery.
Our peer support workers provide something special in that they have their own lived experience of mental distress, recovery and using mental health services. This means they will support you on your recovery journey; helping you make sense of your experience through sharing personal accounts of what they experienced and what they found helpful.
Happenings at Omnia
We were so pleased to be recognised by Norwich City Football Club for the hard work of our staff and the challenges lockdown meant for the people who live here.
We had a lot of changes in a very small space of time, going from having groups in the community and regular visitors to Omnia to having all our activities within the building and grounds.
So lovely to have a little surprise from NCFC, the gift of a cake and signed football shirt was just the pick me up we all needed!
At Omnia we help you build resilience against the ups and downs of life, the symptoms experienced because of a mental health condition and the challenges life throws at us. The recovery programme will help you to increase your connection and hope, help you understand your identity, give meaning and purpose to your day and empower you to take control of your future.
Every week we deliver a number of different recovery sessions and social activities that you can join. Some are planned to give you the opportunity to try something new either at Omnia or out and about. Others are designed to give you dedicated time in a safe place to learn and discuss how to stay well. The sessions are planned with your input and feedback, with regular focus groups and house meetings.

They always have a smile on their face and are willing to help anyone that asks "
