Mental Health Swims is an award-winning, mental health peer support community. We host free, safe and inclusive swim meet ups nationwide.
We welcome anyone along to our swim meet ups and we are proud to have more than 150 swim locations UK-wide and beyond. Participants can swim, dip, paddle or toe-dip and can do what they are most comfortable with. We are firmly focused on dips, not distance and community, not competition. We have trained more than 350 volunteers to facilitate inclusive, safe and welcoming swims.
Mental Health Swims is a community that welcomes and empowers everyone. People of all body shapes, skin colours, ages, backgrounds, genders, sexualities and abilities to enjoy the healing power of cold water and community. There will be a wide range of people living with mental illness attending our swim meet ups so it is of the utmost importance that we are careful about the language we use. We want all our swim hosts, volunteers and participants to keep this in mind both online and in person.
Who is this aimed at?
All welcome. Our swims are inclusive and friendly with a focus on peer support, so do come along, we’d love to see you at a swim soon.
