Bucks Mind has launched a new Mental Health Safety Planning Service in East Berkshire, in partnership with Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
If you live in East Berkshire and have attended A&E or Mental Health Integrated Community Service (MHICS) because you have had thoughts about ending your life and/or you are at risk self-harm, then this Service aims to support you.
The Mental Health Safety Planning Team will work with you on a one-to-one basis for six sessions. These will involve listening and working with you to develop a Safety Plan, which includes:
- Working with you to increase connections and reduce isolation.
- Supporting you to identify and develop coping skills.
- Signposting you to other services and sources of support.
- Providing educational strategies to help manage situations that trigger self-harm or thoughts of ending your life.
Referral to the service is via MHICS or East Berkshire Psychological Services (EBPS).
