Looking after your mental wellbeing
A new online wellbeing hub has launched enabling Surrey residents to access a range of mental health and emotional wellbeing sessions virtually from the comfort of their own home.
Surrey Virtual Wellbeing is designed to become a one-stop-shop where those who require mental health or emotional wellbeing support can view, register and access online activities including virtual coffee mornings, group chat sessions and tailored exercise classes – all sessions that ordinarily would have been held face to face prior to the current lock-down measures.
As a joint partnership between Surrey Heartlands Health and Care Partnership, Surrey County Council and Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, the initiative is one of a number of measures being introduced to enable residents to remain connected during Covid-19 isolation. There is also guidance available for staff and volunteers who are on the frontline of responding to Covid-19.

A summary of mental health support available for residents in Surrey, accessible online and offline, is also available in booklet format in the First Steps Booklet. Paper copies of the booklet are available via Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead.
