Helping you find your We. Because you are not alone.

Walk update

In light of the updated COVID-19 Government guidelines, Mental Health Mates is now able to support members resuming their walks in person! However, moving forward, it is vital we carefully continue to maintain the governments updated measures to ensure the safety of our wonderful MHM community.

What we can do

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.

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.

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!
