Changes to support during the Covid-19 outbreak
Please note, that our existing services will be replaced by telephone or video meetings from this time until further notice.
We recognise that with so many people experiencing uncertain times, isolation, loss of income and contact with friends and family, we have a key role to play in helping them manage their mental health and wellbeing. We are doing everything we can to design new services to help as many people as we can.
We will contact our existing participants individually to let them know of this development and to explain the alternative options that we’ve put in place to continue supporting them.
From Monday 23rd March 2020 you can email us if you need our support with your wellbeing email@example.com and we will do what we can to help you.
Being physically active means sitting down less and moving our bodies more. Many people find that physical activity helps them maintain positive mental health, either on its own, or in combination with other treatments.
This doesn’t have to mean running marathons or training every day at the gym. There are lots of different things you can do to be a bit more active and connect with other people like yourself.
Active in Mind
Our Active in Mind groups are open to anyone experiencing mental health problems, and their support workers. The groups provide a safe and friendly environment in which everyone feels supported, encouraged and stimulated to take part in exercise and connect with people.
Active in Mind takes place in two locations:
Ecotherapy – The GAP Project
We deliver an ecotherapy group alongside our partners Meyers Estate Agents, based at Louds Mill in Dorchester. The GAP Project offers outdoors support from our facilitator and volunteers to help grow and tend 3 allotment plots.
Being outside amongst nature and gardening is proven to increase wellbeing immensely, as is working as a team on a project that benefits the local community.
We offer two weekly sessions – on Tuesdays between 2-4pm and between 10-12pm Fridays mornings.
