Marlow Feel Good 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
A peer support group in Marlow that provides women experiencing mental health problems with an opportunity to meet like-minded people in an informal setting. We provide a safe and welcoming environment where people can meet, support each other, have a focus to the week and develop a sense of community.
This group offers social activities to local people over the age of 18, particularly young women experiencing post-natal depression or social isolation. There is also a free crèche, facilitated by Marlow Children’s Centre, for anyone who wants to bring their children with them.
“The peer support group in Marlow has been so valuable because it has given me the opportunity to express any issues and talk through my problems. It gives me a chance to meet other people who are experiencing the same or similar issues as me and to find support. I can bring my children with me because there is a crèche and I have the space and time to do something creative, which makes me feel so much better.”
– Helen, Marlow Peer Support Group
The Marlow Feel Good Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 10am to 12pm at Foxes Piece Children’s Centre in Marlow.
