As the heat continues to provide challenges for all of us, we wanted to make you aware of some additional changes to our services for the coming week.
On Monday the 18th, and Tuesday the 19th of July, Mid Kent Mind staff have been instructed to work from home to avoid having to travel to the office un-necessarily in high temperatures. There will be a skeleton team in the building to continue to provide our Counselling Services and also to operate our phone lines – but beyond Counselling, there will be no other face-to-face services running from our building on these days.
This is a gap week for Live Well Services so clients who would usually access these sessions should be unaffected. If you are travelling for a counselling session, then we advise you to take all the necessary precautions before travelling in for your session. If you decide that due to the heat you would rather re-arrange your session, then our team will be available to help with facilitating this – please just notify us.
We would encourage those of you who can stay home and stay cool. If you need to leave the house, please try to avoid travelling between 11am and 3pm as these are likely to be the hottest parts of the day. Also ensure that you are carrying water with you – and use sun cream and stick to the shade where possible.
You can find more details about staying safe in the sun at the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/seasonal-health/heatwave-how-to-cope-in-hot-weather/
We hope you are all able to stay safe and well during the hot weather, and look forward to seeing you soon.
