Pause Box


What is Pause?

We’re collaborating with National Mind to bring you Pause – a wellbeing box to give you or someone you care about a moment of calm. By purchasing a box, you’re supporting both Oxfordshire Mind and National Mind. Thank you for supporting the Mind family.

Pause for Work and Pause Single

At least one in six workers experience common mental health problems, including anxiety and depression. Our research shows that work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives, more so than debt or financial problems.

A culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers, but starting a conversation about mental health doesn’t have to be difficult.

Show your team that their wellbeing is important with our Pause for Work boxes.

By purchasing Pause for Work you’re helping the Mind family provide support and advice for people experiencing mental health problems.

How does it work?

We all have times when our wellbeing needs a boost. Pause is here to help you or your loved one find the space to make that happen. Each box includes :

  • An inspirational notebook with positive quotes
  • A reflection card
  • An activity that is designed to encourage creativity, relaxation, a new skill or simply to  take five minutes for themselves
  • A local information card, providing you with all the numbers you need to support yourself and other

What is the Mind family?

We tailor services to our local community, covering everything from talking therapies, crisis support, art therapy, peer support and much, much more.
