Mindfulness drop-in: First Tuesday of the month

Event Series Event Series (See All)

1 October at 13:30 to 14:00

Our drop-ins are led by experienced teachers and offer an opportunity to refresh and sustain your practice. It’s also hugely beneficial to practice with others. Join us.

About the teacher

These sessions are led by Lucy Edwards, Clinical Psychologist working in secondary care adult mental health services within the Trust since 2003. Lucy’s relationship with mindfulness developed from experiencing its benefits first-hand. She integrates mindfulness into her clinical work and in 2015 completed her mindfulness teacher training at the Sussex Mindfulness Centre.

Who are these for?

These drop-ins are now open to all NHS staff across the UK whether or not you have any experience of mindfulness. The drop-ins are also available to staff of the Sussex Health and Care Partnership and anybody else who has done an eight-week mindfulness course with the Sussex Mindfulness Centre.

Not for clinical or crisis care

We offer these drop-in sessions to support your mindfulness practice, to allow you an opportunity to try out mindfulness and build a sense of community.

During the session, please be prepared to have your camera on. If you feel distressed or unwell after a practice, please let the teacher leading the session know and, if appropriate, your GP or a clinician working with you.

It is not advisable to do these mindfulness practices in the heat of a crisis, when it would be important to access your GP or your designated mental health clinician.

Do contact smc@spft.nhs.uk if you have questions about the drop-ins but please be aware that we are not a clinical or crisis service, and it will not be possible to respond urgently or clinically to emails.
