Since our foundation in 1984, Springfield Mind has grown a reputation for providing high quality support and services in the mental health sector. We want everyone in Worcestershire to have the same access to high quality support that we provide in Warwickshire, these include:
Springfield Minds Peer Support Service is delivered in the Wychavon area. The Service has been specifically designed to offer additional wellbeing support, helping people to make the change of progressing from secondary to primary care mental health services as easy and as seamlessly as possible. We work in partnership with Worcestershire Healthy Minds Team with referrals via Gateway Workers and any other community health and social care service who support people with mental health issues. Individuals who feel they may benefit can also self refer.
It can offer one to one support and has links to group support for individuals with low level mental health difficulties. It is comfortable, relaxed and friendly support. Specially trained volunteers who have experience of what it is like to have lived with, or cared for someone with, a mental health condition will explain how it works, talk through what to expect and ask what you might like to get out of it.
They can help with the next steps on the recovery journey by giving short term support. This aims to increase self-esteem and confidence; help to manage any anxieties in moving forward; improve your wellbeing and help you to build stronger connections with what’s going on in the local Wychavon community.
Springfield Mind welcomes any suitable volunteers seeking to help us provide this much needed support to people experiencing mental health difficulties.
