Bringing together Talking Therapies and emotional health for wellbeing webinars


Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes mental health experts have collaborated together to create a range of wellbeing webinars for 2021.

Three leading Talking Therapy teams from Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) have partnered with the aim of improving mental health and wellbeing in the region.

This means that residents in Bedford will have full access to a range of free webinars to boost positive mental health, including support with employment, managing anxiety and stress, and practicing mindfulness exercises.

The online events aim to give individuals an opportunity to step back from day-to-day worries and concentrate on their own mental wellbeing.

Mind BLMK’s Chief Executive Officer, Caroline Lewis said: “This is an incredible and much-needed opportunity for people from across Bedfordshire, Luton, and Milton Keynes to access further support with their mental wellbeing.

“We are really proud to be working alongside the three leading IAPT services to promote this work, and fully believe that by working in a collaborative way the support offering across the region can be so much more effective for those needing services such as this.”
