Mental health awareness is extremely important and having a quiet place to take a break is incredibly valuable for our mental health.
NHS staff in particular have extremely stressful jobs. Rob recently joined the Chief Executive of Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Neil Macdonald, at Stoke Mandeville Hospital’s new Peace Garden.
The garden provides a space where staff can rest and recharge on furniture made by Lindengate Charity with funds raised by Lacey Green and Loosley Row Community Action Groups, Princes Risborough Rotary Club and Loosley Row Garden Group. #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
This reminds us that it's often small things that can make a difference to our wellbeing. There are many local organisations in Bucks that offer help with mental health, including Buckinghamshire Mind, the Buckinghamshire Association for Mental Health, Rethink Mental Illness, and Lindengate Charity, among many others.
