The NENC ICS Staff Wellbeing Hub will run another 7-week mindfulness-based cognitive therapy group programme open to Health and social care staff, starting Wednesday 12th April and ending Wednesday 31st May.

The mindfulness-based programme, which will take place over Microsoft Teams weekly between 1:00pm – 3:30pm, will incorporate:

  • Mindfulness training to support the development of awareness and pacing to learn to override automatic habits of overriding exhaustion and discomfort and, as a consequence, to learn how to be with and reduce the tension and anxiety that a life-long condition or long-covid can bring
  • An exploration of how to integrate recommended physical exercises and activities into your routine
  • Support from others with similar experiences and challenges in a safe group space

Who is this for?

NHS and other care staff with long-covid and/or a long-term condition. All Gateshead Health staff are welcome to sign-up.

What is a long-term condition?

Long-term conditions or chronic diseases are conditions for which there is currently no cure, and which are managed with drugs and other treatment, for example: diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, arthritis and hypertension.
