Enjoying Derbyshire

‘Enjoying Derbyshire’ – Derbyshire Mind’s Community Wellbeing Programme

Derbyshire Mind’s ‘Enjoying Derbyshire’ project offers a varied menu of community based activities, groups, and courses in Derby and Derbyshire, all designed to boost mood and improve our mental wellbeing.

With many different ways to boost our mood and improve our mental and physical wellbeing it can be hard to know where to start or what to try. That’s why we aim to have a mix of different activities across the county and city, so that everyone will find something that suits their needs. What’s more, all of our Enjoying Derbyshire activities are free to attend.

In the past the Enjoying Derbyshire programme has included courses and activities such as, for example:

  • Friendly walking groups
  • Mindful Crafts (in collaboration with Quad)
  • Jogging groups (in collaboraton with Jog Derbyshire)
  • Quilting for PTSD; Tai Chi; QiGong (in collaboration with DALS)
  • Papercrafting (in collaboration with Helen Chapman Papercraft)
  • Pottery; Herbs for Health; Simple Cooking (in collaboration with Brightside)

The Three Wellbeing Strands within Enjoying Derbyshire:

Active Wellbeing
Getting active can improve your physical health, mental wellbeing and often makes you feel good.
Active Wellbeing aims to improve general health, raise mood, reduce feelings of stress and reduce the risk of isolation through social interaction opportunities. There are lots of different ways to get active, whatever your fitness level.

Improving Wellbeing
Positive wellbeing looks different for everyone, as there are so many different skills and attributes that contribute to wellness. By enabling smaller changes, longer term and more personal positive transformations can begin to take shape.
Improving Wellbeing aims to equip you with your own personal wellbeing ‘toolkit’. A toolkit that contains the skills and tools that work for you.

Creative Wellbeing
Learning a new skill, getting focused on a project, or being creatively free can help clear your mind and often be a rewarding process.
Creative Wellbeing aims to improve mood and promote different ways to express yourself creatively. Exploring creative outlets and experiences can also be therapeutic and relaxing for many people.
