We support older people in Bognor, Chichester and Midhurst and surrounding areas
We help people over 65 in the Bognor and Chichester areas who are feeling low, have depression, anxiety or other mental health problem, or are simply feeling isolated.
We invite you to come and join us for:
There will be 10 sessions per month across the Bognor and Chichester areas. Our experienced mental health area manager Jo Bulis and her team will help you create a personal support plan, appropriate for your individual needs..
Our social meetings will be an opportunity to meet others in a friendly and relaxed environment.
All our different sessions, whether focusing on creativity, conversation, physical or mental well-being, aim to increase confidence, self-esteem and encourage independence.
As part of our Communities in Mind service for older people in Bognor and Chichester, we will have volunteer befrienders in the community. These volunteers will support people who may be socially isolated or have lost confidence in getting out and about, for example, because they have been recently bereaved. Our befrienders are there to support people whose mental health issues might be a barrier to them enjoying life to the full in their community.
If you or someone you know could benefit from our Communities in Mind support, please call Jo Bulis on:
If you are in Midhurst and the local rural areas please ring us on 07474 871899 and we will help find the right group for you. Some of the activities and support for older people in Midhurst includes:
