We recognise the huge value which peer support groups provide in reducing isolation, increasing awareness, and providing strategies which can help individuals struggling with Mental Health Illness. Members of the Mental Health Support Group are all currently living with, or recovering from, mental health illness.
We provide the structure and facilitator for groups, ensuring that conversations are managed in a helpful way and offering strategies which can help people cope with their situation more effectively.
On occasion, we also organise for relevant organisations to come to speak to the group, such as the Citizen’s Advice Bureau or the Depression and Anxiety Service . We also co-ordinate outings such as trips to the local woodlands or theatre.
Please contact us prior to attending the group, so that we can discuss your needs. We ask for a suggested donation of £2 per week to help cover the costs of room hire and refreshments.
