Mindfulness groups for Sussex Partnership staff

Sussex Partnership is providing twelve free mindfulness courses, as well as a mindful self-compassion course, for staff across the Trust in 2020. These courses have been run in Sussex Partnership for 15 years and have been shown to reduce stress and increase well-being.  Although they could be the first step in training to be a mindfulness teacher, their main purpose is to support staff wellbeing. The groups, are listed below. DUE TO COVID-19 WE ARE OFFERING COURSES OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS VIA REMOTE PLATFORMS - this means the location of the course is less important:
