Mind Wellbeing Workers are pleased to offer free one-to-one sessions to people who may be experiencing mental health issues or other social or lifestyle issues that are impacting on their wellbeing. The support provided aims to encourage and enable people to link in with local community support. It also helps people develop tools to increase their ability to manage their own wellbeing.
“Mind in Berkshire are here to support you, perhaps you are struggling to sleep, feeling overwhelmed with stress, dealing with multiple responsibilities or feeling unable to concentrate. Our supportive workers will provide you with tools that may help you feel more able to manage these challenges.”
