Helping residents look after their mental health and wellbeing

Posted: 29-09-2021

Here at North Staffs Mind we've continued to work tirelessly to support the mental health of local people throughout the COVID pandemic. We've adapted our services so that they can be accessed remotely, and several new services have been launched to reach out to even more people in need – including those who may be experiencing mental health issues of the first time.

Earlier this year we introduced an exciting, new, free Resilience and Wellbeing Group. This service, which consists of a short group workshop and up to three one to one sessions, is aimed at early intervention to support participants' wellbeing before it may become worse. All sessions are delivered remotely and are delivered at a time to suit the diverse needs of participants.

Since launching in February 2021, the adult team have already received some fantastic feedback from attendees.

"I had a really good experience from start to finish. The workshop gave a useful insight into what resilience is and how it can affect you. It gave ways to build and reconnect. I liked the idea of perspective and reframing." - Workshop attendee

"Being part of the project made me realise I am ok and I am quite resilient to everything I have got going on. My initial 1-2-1 just made me step back and realise wow I do have a lot going on but the project made me think I am actually OK and I am doing OK.

Thank you for your support, it's been really comforting just knowing you guys are there to listen and provide support, it's such a great service you provide :)" - Resilience and Wellbeing group participant

Our Resilience workshops are free to join and are being held on Zoom every week, until the end of February 2022. The next workshop is scheduled are for 30th September and the 7th October.
