This service is for people who are being discharged from the Adult and Child Community Mental Health Teams, we offer Step Up, One Step and Stepped service as an alternative to the respite house that closed in April 2016. This service is in partnership with AWP Recovery Team and Chatsworth House.
The community programme offers a variety of activities and groups to assist you in embedding the Five Ways to Wellbeing in to your life, for example: the walking group (Be Active), math group (Keep Learning), small workshops (Take Notice), and Support and Connect drop in sessions (Connect). We also offer a volunteer programme which relates to the “To Give” element of the Five Ways to wellbeing.
The Employment service at Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind supports members to plan steps towards gaining employment through one to one sessions. Together we look at accessing any training, explore voluntary work and help with CV writing and job searching. Each member will be offered a wellbeing plan helping them set goals and manage their mental wellbeing.
Alongside this we support people who are managing their mental health at work.
