Wellbeing Services COVID-19 Update
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.
We are continuing to offer our small groups at our usual venues (which are ‘COVID secure’) across a carefully planned timetable. We want people to be aware that there are risks when they go out and to consider their own safety when using public transport to get to us. Once here we have lots of safety measures in place, including a requirement to wear masks at all times, and we have activities, chat and friendly faces to meet you. We are also continuing with our regular Zoom sessions, phone calls and newsletters for those who want them.
Our wellbeing groups provide activities based around the Five Ways to Wellbeing: connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give. The groups aim to support the wellbeing and mood of our service users through activities such as arts and crafts, cooking, interactive games and gentle exercise.
The groups support people in their recovery journey and enable them to become more confident and independent. This can play a crucial role in an individual’s recovery, leading to engagement with activities in the community, volunteering and even paid work.
We offer art and music sessions plus groups exclusively for women or men, which encompass many different activities designed to improve mental wellbeing. Groups often go on outings and day trips to enjoy activities such as walking, swimming and bowling. Our annual seaside trip is always popular, with very positive feedback from service users.
