Being Mindful In Clackmannanshire

Health visitors and support staff in Clackmannanshire enlisted the help of Lynne Black, Community Mental Health Worker, to help reduce stress in the workplace. Lynne initially gave the team an information session on stress, how it affects the body and ways to control this. Then, with many people unable to switch off from issues at work or home, mindfulness was discussed as a useful resource to ground staff in the present.

Lynne kindly agreed to facilitate a four week course which was extremely successful in allowing people to accept thoughts and let them pass. Those taking part said they felt very relaxed.

Lynn also gave the staff strategies to practice at home and implement in the workplace.
