Mind the Gap

Welcome to Mind The Gap.  We are a peer-support group offering social and activity groups for people experiencing  mental health difficulties and social isolation. We are based in Chesham, Buckinghamshire with social and activity groups in Wycombe and Chesham.

Our peer support groups provide a safe environment here people can support each other, enjoy a social life, share experiences, learn new coping techniques and support one another in their recovery. These groups can be accessed without a referral from mental health professionals and are available to people on benefits or low income through low costs and “pay as you go” price structures.

 

About us

After seven successful years, Mind the Gap Bucks has now been incorporated into Buckinghamshire Mind’s peer-support services. Mind the Gap Bucks’ groups will remain the same and we hope to expand our services to other locations and times in the coming year.

Comments from our members, past and present

When I joined Mind the Gap Bucks’ badminton group 3 years ago I met a welcoming, friendly, supportive group of people of all abilities. I’ve had a lot of fun playing badminton and become more confident. Playing here improved my skills hugely and now I enjoy playing in other groups as well. This has been very beneficial for my mental health and I have developed a real interest in the game so, thank you Mind the Gap Bucks! (J)

Mind the Gap Bucks has helped immensely to increase my confidence in social environments, which in turn helped me into employment. (R)

The group gave me a great amount of support, on various levels. I will always be thankful for the extremely important role the group has played in my life and my recovery. (B)

We now have a new timetable of activities in both High Wycombe and Chesham.
