Men’s Crisis House launches recovery groups
Bristol Mental Health's Men's Crisis House
has launched client-led recovery groups to support people staying
at the service.
"The groups were set up to help people maintain their mental
health by developing tools and strategies to do this," says Mel
Palmer, project manager at the Men's Crisis House.
Staff at the service - which is run by St Mungo's - developed
the weekly groups after consultation with clients. The groups have
met since December and focus on how members can use the five ways
to wellbeing to help their recovery.
The five ways to wellbeing are five free,
evidence-based actions that individuals can practise regularly to
improve their wellbeing. They include connect, be active, take
notice, learn and give.
