Our response to dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak
We know that our services are important to you and we want to continue to support your mental wellbeing. We are taking a steady, informed approach to the COVID-19 outbreak and working to implement the official guidance. Our goal is to continue to provide a safe working, support and learning environment for our workers, service users and visitors in all Kensington and Chelsea Mind services. Our ability to do this greatly depends on all of us working together for this aim.
What we are doing for you:
- Providing soaps, sanitizers for your hands
- Enhancing our cleaning and disinfecting routine throughout our Centres, to provide safe surfaces and equipment
- Limiting off site social events in public venues, where we cannot provide the same levels of preventative hygiene management
- Limiting our presence at external meetings, to prioritize our capacity to deliver services to people who need them
- Conducting Mind business by email and phone – to ensure continuity of business
What you can do for us:
- Make use of soap and sanitizers as deemed appropriate
- Reduce physical contact with others
- If you feel ill, please stay at home and let us know. We will support you to get the right advice if you need help
- Alert us by phone if you have attended services recently and have been diagnosed with COVID-19
- Keep in telephone contact with your mental health support networks for support
Mind services will continue to be provided unless otherwise advised. We would ask you to follow the guidelines above.
We will keep you informed of any new developments or changes in services. Please check our website news feed for updates.
