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).
