What's on in Chanctonbury

If you're in the Steyning, Storrington, Pulborough and Billingshurst areas and looking for help with your mental health, you've come to the right place. Our team is now offering video calls, online video group sessions and phone support

Our Pathfinder Chanctonbury support hub is offering online one-to-one sessions, group sessions to socialise with others, and learning and development workshops.

The current weekly online groups include:

  • Monday meditation: a relaxing way to start the week with a guided meditation. We start the session with a check-in to see how you are and then run a 10 minute meditation session. This is then followed by another check-in to see how the session went for you and your plans for the week ahead.
  • Virtual drop-in every Wednesday: 'safe virtual space' and an opportunity to meet other people and have a chat about how you’re managing at the moment, share techniques and also bring along some arts or crafts to complete during the session.
  • Virtual quiz on a Friday
  • A private Facebook group for people who get support with us in the Chanctonbury area.

We also have one-off workshops on:

  • Managing self-isolation and social distancing: How do we manage our worry and anxiety at this time, what might help and how do we structure our days? Join us for a 75 minute workshop with opportunity to discuss the tips and share your thoughts.
  • Crisis planning workshop: Become better informed about a mental health crisis and how to manage before, during and after and how a crisis has changed as we self-isolate
  • Introduction to Five Ways to Well-being: looking at the Five Ways to Well-being model, the benefits and how it can be utilised during self-isolating
  • Understanding depression: looking at how to make sense of depression and ways to manage its overwhelming effects
  • Self-care: why it matters: aspects of self-care and how self-care is linked to our physical and mental health
  • Book folding: A craft workshop on the art of folding pages of a book and creating visual images.

Our team can also help you with:

  • Advice and information about your mental health and about other services
  • One-to-one support to set goals, review your progress and discuss any issues you are dealing with
  • Focused learning and development workshops (currently online) led by staff and trained peer mentors. Sessions will help you achieve your goals around improving mental and physical well-being and support your personal development
  • Access to a peer mentor. You can find out more about peer mentoring here.
