NHFT continues to provide patients and service users who have existing mental health conditions with free access to an NHS-approved digital mindfulness course: ‘Be Mindful’.
‘Be Mindful’ offers online training for service users, providing tools and guidance to improve users overall wellbeing.
NHFT has been able to offer this support through funding from the Northamptonshire Health Charity.
NHFT is committed to providing outstanding and compassionate care, and recognises the impact which these extraordinary times have had on patients and service users. The project has offered the programme to over 500 patients since its launch in June, with more than 260 patients and service users already accessing the programme.
This supportive guided online course offers a flexible pathway which allows users to practise mindfulness at their own speed using a range of cognitive behaviour therapies. The pathway has the potential to reduce levels of stress, depression and anxiety, and maintain and enhance general wellbeing.
More information on the impacts which the course has had on patients and service users will be shared in the forthcoming months. To find out more: https://www.nhft.nhs.uk/research
