*January 2021 Support Update*
Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind remains open to provide mental health help and support.
Further to the government announcement around a national lockdown, we are acutely aware of the impact this will have on people’s mental health and wellbeing. Therefore, we have taken every step to ensure we can deliver our services as safely as possible. This includes options for online, over the phone or face to face appointments.
If you want face to face appointments, we ask you to follow the COVID guidelines. We have measures in place to ensure we can safely provide this support, including requiring all staff, volunteers and visitors to wear a face covering, attending appointments on their own where possible, and observing social distancing.
- Visitors to our Ashton or Oldham offices should wear a face covering at all times.
- If you have your own, please bring it with you – it needs to cover your nose and mouth.
- If you do not have one when you visit, please see a member of staff who will provide you with one.
- For some people, wearing a face covering may be difficult due to physical or mental health conditions. In these instances, please let our staff know and other measures will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
It is safe and important to attend your appointment and seek help when needed. Unless you hear from us directly, please attend as normal.
National guidance states that you can continue to attend hospital, GP and other medical appointments or visits where you have had an accident or are concerned about your health. However, if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or are feeling unwell please do not come to your appointment and instead contact us on 0161 330 9223 to let us know.
The team can help rearrange your appointment for you. Thank you for your continued help and support during this time.
