Befriending is a fantastic service. I have had some really tough times physically and mentally and Befriending has got me through.
What is Befriending?
Bath Mind’s Befriending Service is based at the Community Wellbeing Hub and supports adults (16+) needing regular telephone contact if they are feeling lonely or isolated, anxious or have low mood.
Our team of experienced staff are there to listen and offer advice to promote positive health and wellbeing, accessing wider services and communities and building confidence.
Our Befriending Service opening hours are Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm.
How can I access the Befriending service?
If you are 16+ and living within B&NES and would like to register with us to receive regular calls, please contact: 0300 247 0050 – (ask for Bath Mind’s Befriending service).
Please note that there is currently a waiting list of up to three months for Befriending calls to begin. We are able to process initial assessments in the meantime.
We operate a zero tolerance practice on verbal aggression towards staff.
