    Mindfulness FREE on the NHS!!!!!

    I have just signed up for a FREE Mindfulness course on the NHS in Wiltshire!!

    It is a 5 week course and to my knowledge this is the first time the NHS are providing a Mindifulness course which is FREE.

    This I am told is a National program so there should be a course in your area too.

    The Wiltshire course is with the Lift Psychology Program which is self referral so there is no need to go to your GP. I am not sure if it will be the same name nationally.

    As Mindfulness is the new "big thing" in mental health treatment and to MY mind is better than CBT some of you may want to try it.



    Moderators: Is there anyway that this can be highlighted so people dont miss this information?

    Thanks Sarah

    It is "stuck" to the top of this forum so can be seen more easily and won't get lost amongst other posts

    Hi Sarah, it is a course you can book on the lift website like the CBT ones or do you have to ring up and request a place?x

    Re: Mindfulness FREE on the NHS!!!!!

    I found out about it from a friend who works in Occ Health for the Fire Service so gets all the latest info' about these things.

    In my area (Wiltshire) we have a self referral system for therapy which is called "Lift Psychology". Other areas may be called something else. You just go on the internet and book yourself on to any course you want.

    These Mindfulness courses are a NATIONAL initiative so within your NHS Trust you should be able to find a course.

    If you cant find it on the internet in your area can I suggest you ring your GP surgery who should have information OR look up your local Mental Health Area team and ask them.

    Good luck everyone.....perhaps if you find it in your area you could post the info on this thread for others in your area

    I'm in Bristol and the only courses that LIFT have on their website at the moment is the CBT course-this could be due to the fact the mindfulness ones are all booked out though.

    I will give them a call at a later date to find out if that course is available here.

    Can't travel too far from home at the moment due to my agoraphobia-otherwise I would have said 'it's a date Sarah!'
