With the UK now facing unprecedented isolation measures and restrictions to the way we all lead our everyday lives, it’s more important than ever to think about the mental health and wellbeing of our communities. For many, particularly those with existing mental health problems, this is a particularly stressful and challenging time and so Bath Mind‘s mental health support services are critical and a lifeline for so many.
Bath Mind has sadly had to shut down many services during this time, but are focusing on offering as much phone/video support as they can. Plus they’ve come up with several new initiatives including an evening crisis support phone line, Skype counselling, Zoom Wellbeing Coffee Mornings and wellbeing packs. But of course they need funds to help keep these going.
What your money can do
£100 will pay for 5 sessions of 1:1 counselling via phone/Sype
£200 will pay for someone to join a weekly virtual Wellbeing Coffee Morning and get access to the online Get Creative sessions
£600 will pay for 16 key workers to get access to free online mental health workshops and resources
