Wokingham Wellbeing Service

Mind in Berkshire Wellbeing Workers take a person-centred approach in the delivery of 1-to-1 sessions for people aged 18+ who are experiencing mild-to-moderate 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 existing support services, use the support available in their local community, and develop tools to increase their ability to manage their own wellbeing.

They can:

·        Help you identify what is important to you.

·        Offer time, space and support for you to work out the positive changes you need to make.

·        Tell you about relevant services, resources and tools you can access to improve your wellbeing.

·        Support you to reach your goals.

This service is available via all GP practices in Wokingham and can offer telephone or video sessions depending on what works for you. Face-to-face support is currently available in certain GP practices or for those who may find telephone/video communication challenging. We hope to expand our face-to-face provision in line with Coronavirus risk.
