Welcome to Mind Map, an online community which looks at making Nottingham's public spaces more accessible to people living with anxiety and panic. By creating spaces for people who may be experiencing an anxious episode, we create opportunities for people to feel calmer and more able to continue with their day.
Whilst the overall aim of Mind Map is to make public spaces more accessible to people living with anxiety, currently the programme is focusing only on sharing information about how businesses and public spaces are reopening after the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown. Please note that this information is changing quickly due to the changing restrictions, so please visit the websites and social media pages listed below for the most up to date information.
How does Mind Map work?
On the Network Listings page, you will find details of every venue that has signed up to be part of Mind Map Nottingham. Each venue will have details of what facilities it can offer someone experiencing anxiety. These could include:
- A quiet place to sit.
- Access to toilets.
- A Mental Health First Aider on site.
Why is this important?
For many people, living with an anxiety or panic disorder can make everyday activities overwhelming and frightening. By creating spaces within towns and cities for people to take a moment, Mind Map network members can make these activities easier and more accessible to all.
