Bath Mind’s NEW Breathing Space launched – 13th April!
Bath Mind’s NEW Breathing Space opens on Monday 13th April
The Breathing Space service will be open 365 days a year between 5.30pm and 11.30pm and will be delivered by 3 trained staff every evening supporting members of the community at the point of mental health distress or crisis.
Our Breathing Space staff offer a calm, non-clinical telephone service supporting individuals experiencing, or at risk of a mental health crisis. The service provides practical and emotional support and may be used as an alternative to admission to statutory services.
Unfortunately, Bath Mind’s original plan to open a face-to-face service at a designated single venue has been put on hold by the COVID-19 outbreak, therefore the service will begin as a telephone support project to then later become a physical one-to-one service.
Bath Mind’s Breathing Space opens on Monday 13th April from 5.30pm to 11.30pm each evening throughout the year.
People using the service must be:
- 16 years or over
- Registered with a GP within B&NES.
