Walk update

In light of the updated COVID-19 Government guidelines, Mental Health Mates has taken the decision to recommend that Walk Leaders pause all MHM group Walks until the next Government review.

Although our group Walks may be on hold, please remember there are plenty of ways to stay connected during this time. We are encouraging our MHM community to keep connected via our virtual meets, or to arrange a one on one meet up for a ‘date with a Mental Health Mate.’

We are also introducing Mental Health Mates at Home for our MHM Members. This is a monthly Zoom event hosted by Bryony and the MHM Team! The event will focus on different topics relating to mental health, featuring special guests throughout the year. These zoom events will give us all the opportunity to share, connect and listen with the MHM Community from the comfort of our homes.

Sign up to be a member here.

Make a date with a Mental Health Mate!

Current government guidelines state that you may meet one other person  outdoors for walks. With this in mind, here at MHM, we want to encourage you to, Make a date with a Mental Health Mate!

We would love for you to continue to meet up with one other person, either from your MHM Walk or broader community, for a walk! It is so important to keep connected in these challenging times, so please don’t hesitate to Make a Walk Date!

When you do organise a Walk Date, we ask that you continue to follow social distancing guidelines when meeting and walking – you can read more about these measures here.

If you have any questions about Make A Date please email us at hello@mentalhealthmates.co.uk and we can guide you from there.

What you can do

Please attend walks at your own discretion. If you are in a vulnerable group please continue with our alternative virtual meet ups.

Whilst we want to provide as much safety and security as we can for our community, we cannot be responsible in the event of a group member contracting the virus.

What we can do outside lockdown

In accordance with the safety guidelines, a maximum of six individuals from separate households are permitted to gather outdoors. Therefore, Walk Leaders will only be advised to lead a group of six. We ask that all six walkers register their information with their Walk Leader before the walk takes place. In the event of a group member contracting the virus, the registration we have put in place will ensure we can efficiently carry out track and trace.

Alongside this, we advise that all group members continue to observe social distancing and health measures. This includes:

  • keeping one meter away from people not in your household
  • washing your hands regularly
  • self isolating if feeling unwell

Although we are now able to resume in person walks, please note that MHM are still hosting online meet ups via Zoom or Skype. These virtual sessions are organised by the Walk Leaders and are still being hosted as well as smaller walks. Arrangements vary according to location so please see our guide to Walks and Virtual meetings for more information.

Thank you

We have been overwhelmed by the ongoing support from this community throughout these unprecedented times. If the pandemic has shed light on anything, it is the strength and willingness of this community to stand together, even when physically apart! Mental Health Mates is a beautiful example of the best that humanity has to offer.

We are thrilled to be resuming our walks so we can continue to share, listen, connect and walk together!

If you have any questions or queries please email us at hello@mentalhealthmates.co.uk
