We need you, our community, to help us end the stigma around mental health, spread awareness for the services we provide and raise vital funds so that we can continue supporting those in need.
Our premises provide a safe and welcoming place for anyone to come and chat, share their experiences over a cup of tea, escape potential loneliness and relax, away from daily stresses. We offer regular drop-in sessions for adults twice weekly on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons, as well as providing support to parents and babies on Thursday mornings.
In addition, we have a Friendship support line. Just call our Reception on 07714 503 556 and they will put you in touch with one of our wonderful volunteers for a chat.
If you, or anyone you know, is struggling with their mental health, please speak up and reach out. We are here for you.
