Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies have joined with the Centre’s Mental Health Community Connectors and Communities Driving Change team to run monthly sessions to talk about all things mental health.
The online sessions create an open but safe space to connect with others and for people to talk and to hear others share their own challenges with mental health. If talking is difficult, the written chat function helps give the people confidence to open up.
As part of the session, Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies runs an instructive session on aspects of mental health such as mindfulness with an interactive section to help people develop coping skills.
A final check-in part of each session helps people to talk about how they might use the tools they have learnt. Participants are also introduced to community groups and activities with other like-minded people to continue supporting good mental health.
The next session ‘The journey out of lockdown’ is on July 20th on Zoom 10.30-12pm and will explore ways to manage our wellbeing as we slowly come out of coronavirus restrictions and try to resume a more ‘normal’ day-to-day life.
- Practical ways to cope with fear and anxiety
- Stress management techniques
- Setting SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time bound)
