Firstly, you will notice that the surgeries have now changed to a telephone number as with the coronavirus it is not possible to meet face to face at the current time.
This will be a very anxious time for many of you as the thought of being unable to move freely about can be frightening especially if you don’t have a large support network of friends and family. Whilst I cannot feel how you do individually, I can empathise as someone who lives on their own with family living a distance away. It is very important in these difficult times that we are able to support each other as much as possible.
What will Dudley Mind be doing to support you?
At the current time most groups and projects are still able to operate albeit under more restrictive and stringent conditions. I would urge you all to follow whatever staff ask you to do in order to ensure your health and wellbeing as far as we are able as well as the staff team supporting you.
For groups meeting in other premises then it is only a matter of time before we are told these are not available. This has already happened in the case of Henry Court as some of you are aware.
As the government ramps up the restrictions on us all we will be putting place support in the following ways:
Jill, Liz and I will be joining in this as well.
It is very important that you are able to find ways to manage your mental health during this time as this site will impact on your physical health. Try to keep calm as the situation will eventually pass. Utilise any breathing and relaxation exercises you can. Think of things you enjoy and places you have been that you can recall and revisit in your mind.
It is important to try and keep to a routine if you are unable to leave your home. It is very easy to lose track of dates and times.
Above all don’t be afraid to ask for support. Everyone will need this in the weeks ahead.
Be assured that we all have your best interests at heart and will be working hard to support you all during this difficult time.
