Mental heath swim hosts are a community of people who have found cold water beneficial to their mental health.
Myself and Jonny Cowie will be hosting our own swim meet in Beckenham Palace Park Lake, the last Sunday of every month (subject to local and national restrictions)
We are a mental health peer support group. Swim hosts are there to be a friendly, welcoming face at meet ups - we focus on dips, not distance , and socialising rather than training.
We look forward to seeing you there!
We do not offer swim coaching, lifeguarding, therapy or safety advice.
All participants enter the water at their own risk and must be responsible for their own safety at all times.
