WAVES – Norfolk and Waveney Mind

What is Waves?

Waves is a 12-month recovery and life skills programme, offering understanding, tools and support for people with a diagnosis or traits of borderline/emotionally unstable personality disorder. The group offers a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.

Waves runs one day a week, 10am-4pm, from a purpose-built Recovery Centre at Sale Road, Norwich. It is easily accessible by the no 23/23A bus from the city centre, which stops a minute’s walk away from the Recovery Centre.

What do we learn?

Waves is a psychoeducational programme run in a therapeutic environment, but it is worth noting, Waves is NOT therapy.
Over the course of the year, we cover many topics including:

  • Safety Planning and Staying Well
  • Dealing with Change
  • Recovery
  • Acceptance
  • Values and Identity

The morning sessions consist of psychoeducational learning, focusing on recovery, mental health and wellbeing. The afternoons are a mixture of social and creative sessions, with an emphasis on having fun, trying new things and making connections in a safe and non-judgmental environment. You are expected to attend both sessions, each week over a 12 month period.

  • Emotional Regulation
  • Relationships and Managing Conflict
  • Goal Setting and Planning for the Future
