Mindfulness drop-ins

We offer free mindfulness drop-in sessions online throughout the month.

Sustains and deepens

The drop-ins are led by experienced teachers and offer an opportunity to sustain your practice and to sample mindfulness. It’s also hugely beneficial to practice with others.

Drop-ins are online

These mindfulness drop-ins are absolutely free. As they take place online (Zoom) you can join us from anywhere.

Who are the sessions 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.
