Mental Health Mates aim to provide an informal opportunity for both sufferers and carers to meet with peers and walk and talk without fear of judgment whilst getting some valuable time in the outdoors.
The idea for Mental Health Mates came from journalist and mental health campaigner Bryony Gordon, who set up her first local group in London in 2016. Now the #findyourwe campaign has enabled volunteer led groups to spring up all over the country connecting people dealing with mental ill-health and their carers, loved ones and families who are welcome to attend.
We offer over 60 walks across Buckinghamshire.
Our trained volunteer walk leaders and backmarkers are there to help you walk at your own pace, with no need to worry about being left behind. However, please try and attend the level of walk you feel you can do.
All new walkers are welcome whether you are fit and active, haven’t exercised in a long time, or have been advised to join by a doctor.
