Springboard Peer Support Group Meetings

Sheffield Mind Springboard is a support group for people with mental health issues.

It provides a safe space to meet other people, make friends and get help and advice to achieve goals, develop confidence and try new things.

Due to Covid restrictions, we are providing a blend of in person and outdoor events so we can keep staff and service users safe - or as staff as we can. Our virtual meetings take place every Wednesday, 3.00 - 4.45 p.m. We use Zoom and our group facilitator will be happy to advise about how to use the platform if you are not familiar.

For details of the latest walks and talks, see our What's On Section

If you would like to join a group session email Teresa at [email protected] for further information. 

Keeping Connected during Lockdown

In the early stages of Lockdown, when we were all learning to come to terms with the impact of Covid, we were determined to keep on touch with service users and did so via an informal weekly newsletter.

It had tips and advice for staying safe and staying occupied and to honour Spingboard tradition, we even threw in the odd quiz!

In addition, we recently launched our Springboard Scribbler Project, a pen pal scheme aimed at keeping people connected and helping people express how they are feeling or to ask any questions about their wellbeing and best to cope.

We know that a lot of people attend our groups because they are lonely and lack confidence and we know that some will be finding the physical and emotional isolation very difficult to manage.  We want to encourage anyone that's feeling lonely and cut off to get in touch. Our Scribbler can help answer your questions, can advise on services and just be there to let you know that you are not alone and we do want to hear from you.
