Building emotional resilience one pot of tea at a time…

Resilience, explains Prof Richard Williams, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at the University of South Wales, comes from the Latin resilio, which means to jump (or bounce) back. Now, emotional resilience measures our ability to cope with or adapt to stressful situations or crises – be this a hurricane in Kathmandu or an A-level exam in Kingston. Indeed, says Prof Williams, the two situations aren’t so different – rather, they’re on a “spectrum of adversity”.

World Health Organisation.

Mr. P calls for community-based psychosocial interventions for anyone facing emotional or social distress. “Psychiatric interventions are not needed in many cases and the appropriate care and support can be provided by general care workers, such as family doctors, community nurses and home visitors. - See more at: https://goo.gl/Zmwyw7

We are a not for profit community run cafe in Bootle in Liverpool UK.

We would like to use giffgaff to extend our care offer to people who cant make it into the cafe. If they all had giffgaff SIMs it would be free for them to call. This would reduce the sense of loneliness and social isolation that all have a negative impact on physical and emotional wellbeing. it would be a giffgaff community within our community.

We would stock the sims in the cafe and with the right support giff gaff could use our website so people could join in the cafe. Customers get a great sim and the community can call each other free.

To see more what the cafe does have a look at twitter @kindfullnesscc or www.kindfulnesscoffeeclub.com

Cheers!

Having suffered depression in the past, I can understand the importance of having support. I think this is a fantastic idea!!!! ????

I see some "not for us" comments, which is sad; I like the outline of the idea and think that there's room for discussion. There are a lot of lonely people out there.
