Situation

Our community regularly report feeling isolated and anxious. This has been exacerbated by COVID-19 and social distancing which presented new and frightening challenges for our community. The pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health and wellbeing of our community and we have received a significant increase in anxious queries about the impact of the crisis. The pandemic has forced us to find ways to connect our community virtually and we would like to expand on this going forward.

Solution

We are planning to roll out a range of innovative new mental health and wellbeing services across 2022 which include mindfulness courses, workshops, counselling sessions and support groups.
