This week is Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June) and Buckinghamshire Mind want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our amazing volunteers for their wonderful contribution.
Buckinghamshire Mind, in partnership with Community Impact Bucks, has produced a series of mental health training videos to support volunteers who may be experiencing complex and distressing cases, and need help in building skills to deal with these. Each 10-minute training video provides advice by looking at three areas:
- How to look after your own mental health
- How to set boundaries
- How to support someone else’s mental wellbeing.
To access this mental health resource for volunteers, please visit our Volunteering page.
Community Impact Bucks is an independent charity that supports people and groups to get involved and make a difference in Buckinghamshire communities. It offers expert advice and training, helps people to find volunteering opportunities, and helps charities and not for profit groups to get started, be effective and grow.
