Burnham Peer Support Group
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
Peer Support Group (Burnham Library) – every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month (11-1pm)
Buckinghamshire Mind runs a twice-monthly peer support group in this area for people with mild to moderate mental health problems.
The group provides an opportunity for local people to meet regularly, to talk, to listen, to share experiences and, with Buckinghamshire Mind support, to develop the group themselves.
