Time to Change Buckinghamshire
Time to Change is a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health problems.
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic we at Buckinghamshire Mind are closely following the Government’s guidelines on health and safety measures regarding social distancing. As such we have made important changes to our services to ensure the safety of our service users, volunteers and staff. To ensure the safety of all, we have removed the aspects of this (these) service (s) that involves face to face groups and/or 121 meetings. We will continue to create and develop innovative ways of delivering remote mental wellbeing support that focuses on tackling social isolation and promoting positive emotional wellbeing.
As such, we are still running this (these) service (s) remotely, including (this is not an exhaustive list):
- daily phone/email/text support
- online activities and support groups
- live groups via various digital platforms
- postal care packages- including motivational ideas, group activities and peer communication
- practical support, such as shopping and liaising with external services
Time to Change Buckinghamshire is a partnership of local organisations and people who are committed to ending mental health stigma and discrimination. The Buckinghamshire partnership was established in April 2018 and is hosted by the Buckinghamshire Health and Wellbeing Board with Buckinghamshire Council and Buckinghamshire Mind.
