Mental Health Awareness Week - Believe in Recovery?

Recommended Posts

Spaces Recovery Services offer a twelve week reablement/preventative service which is recovery focused. The service offers a range of educational and social programmes including the Recovery Education Programme, psycho-educational and social inclusion groups.

 

The courses range in length and group size and included are just some of the following subjects;

 

Anxiety Management, Mood and Depression Management, Mindfulness, Relaxation, Creative Arts Therapy, Transitions Group (for under 25 yr olds), Understanding BPD, and many many more.

 

The aim of this service is to build resilience and to help individuals to develop positive coping strategies, enabling them to access mainstream activities in the community including training and employment.

 

This service incurs no cost to access and is primarily for service users who do not meet the eligibly criteria for Self Directed Support.

 

Contact numbers are 01142 262660 or 2262500. Speaking personally, it was the short term Recovery focused groups available at Spaces that saved my life, not being in services for treatment. The team are amazing, the courses are fantastically delivered and most importantly, they believe in Recovery. They accept direct GP referrals.

That's good to hear, though it's a shame that they can't accept self referrals

Yes, it's part of the shsc group bluedf. They are all very good at their jobs and are extremely approachable.

 

You can't refer yourself, but if you give them a ring one of the recovery coaches will be able to discuss your options with you and even meet with you for coffee and a chat. There is no reason why your gp shouldn't refer you, it's costs them nothing although the gp referral scheme is pretty new so they might not even know about it yet!

 

Hope that helps
